Viruskenner is a competition for high school students interested in science, who wish to gain knowledge on (exotic) viruses. How do viral infections spread, what is their effect on the human and animal body, how do people get infected, and foremost: how to cure people or prevent them from falling ill?
Each year about 15 schools in the Netherlands, Suriname, Indonesia, Senegal and South Africa, consisting of over 500 students, take part in the Viruskenner project! They are supported by 16 Viruskenner coaches, who assist them wherever they can! Eventually, there will be several winners in each country, who will be announced during the official Viruskenner Final Day:
• Best solution design
• Best content
• Most innovative product
• Final Day Quiz winner
