‘Viruses and Vaccines’ activity resources

The ‘Viruses and Vaccines’ activity resources have been developed by a team of pathologists, creatives and public engagement practitioners to facilitate informed discussions about viruses and vaccines. The collection includes art-science resources, guides to hands-on STEM activities for schools, video interviews and guides, and an FAQs section.

Use these free resources to explore the fascinating world of viruses, and to understand more about the science behind COVID-19, immunity and vaccines. Pathologists are invited to use the resources as a way to open conversations about these topics with the public, and we’re hopeful they will help dispel common myths and misconceptions.
