November 13, 2012

The Black Mamba snake has a powerful painkiller in its venom. Researchers think it can be used on people as a substitute for morphine.

STEM Challenge: Why do you think it might be good to study snake venom?

All answers count!

All girls who give an answer will be part of a drawing for a cool STEM avatar, just for them! Check back on November 20 to see if YOU won.

 

Thanks, ScienceNews.org, for “Snakebite packs potent painkiller,” by Tanya Lewis, which inspired this STEM Challenge.
