Teach the structure and life cycle of the coronavirus with our unique model!

Models are powerful tools for teaching science because they provide useful simplifications of structures and processes, helping to make the unseen seen and the complex simple.  

The outbreak of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2 or 2019-nCoV) highlights the importance of understanding how such viruses infect us and how we can use this understanding to develop vaccines and medicines. Our model of the coronavirus causing coronavirus disease (COVID-19) shows its structure and what the different parts do.

The model includes the viral envelope, RNA genome, spike protein, membrane protein, envelope protein and the enzymes replicase and protease.

Your students will learn about coronavirus structure and life cycle and provides a good starting point to discuss the challenges that are caused by novel virus strains. It can also be used as an introduction to general virus structure for all levels of students.

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Structure 3-D Model Making Kit includes enough materials for students to assemble up to 10 paper models working cooperatively. The comprehensive Teacher Resource Guide included, also provides teaching opportunities for students to Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend and Evaluate their understanding of the concepts presented.

Models are powerful tools for teaching science because they provide useful simplifications of structures and processes, helping to make the unseen seen and the complex simple.

Based upon the NGSS Standards, students are expected to develop and use models to represent structures, systems and processes, and then provide explanations, make predictions, or investigate possible solutions.

Using the ready-to-use materials provided with each 3-D model set, students first assemble a model to represent a structure or an entire system as an aid to develop questions and explanations. They will then generate data and observations that can be used to make predictions and communicate ideas to others.
