Students Research Viruses

April 1, 2020

Students in research class were deeply involved in the study of viruses this year (flu and dengue – one similar to Covid-19 in how it acts). Both have no vaccine or treatment. Students were scheduled to present their work, including 3D modeling, at a conference in California but it was cancelled.

This year’s class split into two groups with one group studying the flu virus and one studying the dengue virus. While they made it through quite a bit of the class, including building 3D models of the viruses, they are unable to attend their conference to present.
