These presentations explore the nature and effects of COVID-19 through the STEM disciplines.

Essential Question
Why is hand washing so effective against COVID-19?

Do you want to learn why handwashing is so important? In this workshop, we are going to talk about the structure of viruses in general and COVID-19 in particular, and we will explore why that structure makes it vulnerable to soap.

To Do

  1. Watch the video.
  2. Let’s learn how to wash our hands correctly by learning a catchy TikTok dance from this video. This video is a Vietnamese TikTok that used a song promoted by the government that informs the public about how to stay safe during this pandemic. The TikTok dance shows the proper handwashing technique!
