Viruskenner in a nutshell
Primary and highschool
Viruskenner is a project for primary and high school students to gain knowledge on viruses. How do viral infections spread, what is their effect on the human and animal body and foremost: how to cure people or prevent them from falling ill?
Like viruses, knowledge and awareness are not limited to borders. The past decade, students from all ages, all around the world have joined the Viruskenner community. And still do! This year Viruskenner is running in three countries: The Netherlands, Italy and Suriname.
Work in teams
Teamwork is key! Students get to work together with the knowledge they gain during the project. The question is ‘How do we want to spread this knowledge’. Teams are supported by their mentors and the Viruskenner coaches, who assist them wherever they can.
