Wednesday the 15th of april Planet Virus 2015 has started in the Netherlands. All participating secondary students visited the Erasmus University in Rotterdam to listen to talks of young scientists. For example about ‘The life of a researcher’ and ‘A search for new viruses’. The kick-off was exciting for the pupils. From now on they have 9 weeks to work on their subject. The coaches will visit their schools twice. The first visit will give the students the opportunity to ask their coach all the questions they have. The second visit they will present their prevention tool and the coaches will choose the best presentation per school. This group of students may prepare for the final day.
The final day in the Netherlands will take place at wednesday the 17th of June. The best presentation will be awared with the Planet Virus price of 2015.
