Paper Modeling Activity: Build a Coronavirus
Coronaviruses are envelope viruses surrounded by a spherical membrane with a viral genome inside and a spike protein outside. In this activity you will create your own coronavirus. Our paper model provided below can be printed, cut and folded into a 3D physical representation of the virus that you will modify as you move through parts 2, 3 and 4 of the Science of Coronaviruses series. You can also draw your own coronavirus.
We'd love to see your model! Send a photo or video to contactus@3dmoleculardesigns or tag us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
