Origami Organelles™ 3-D Model Kit: Coronavirus Structure

(in stock)


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) has highlighted the importance of understanding how such viruses infect us and how we can use this understanding to develop vaccines and medicines.

The Coronavirus Structure 3-D Model shows its structure and details what the different components of the structure do. The model includes the viral envelope, RNA genome, spike protein, membrane protein, envelope protein, and the enzymes, replicase and protease. Through its use, your students will learn about coronavirus structure and life cycle and have an excellent 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.

This model-making kit includes enough materials for students to assemble up to 5 paper models working cooperatively. The included comprehensive teacher resource guide provides illustrated readings, activities, key vocabulary, and an assessment, along with teaching opportunities for students to Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, and Evaluate their understanding of the concepts presented.
