Teaching about COVID-19 using zSpace

Today at John Burroughs High School in Burbank, CA, the students and I used zSpace to explore the coronavirus. We started by exploring the coronavirus model in VIVED Science. Then, I challenged students to a game of “What do you REALLY know about coronavirus?” I have made a Kahoot with the trivia game: https://kahoot.it/challenge/0528946?challenge-id=ce027172-14e2-4920-b185-65cabe5dddf9_1583878258158. Are you ready for the challenge?!

To follow-up on the trivia challenge, we would complete the ‘Human Response to the Flu’ Experience (E436) to learn how viruses use human cells to replicate. Then, go back into the coronavirus model in VIVED Science to find the capsid, proteins, etc. of the virus.

This is timely and fun! Who would have guessed that one day we would be using virtual reality to help our students understand more about viruses. Thanks so much for sharing. I am certain this activity will be used by many. :+1:
