What do vampires, zombies and viruses all have in common? Find out at a workshop where you’ll learn about some of the world’s most interesting (and dangerous) diseases, how they are transmitted and why some of them are so harmful to the human body. Use creative methods - like clay models, comic-writing, infographics or storytelling - to showcase your knowledge about viruses and find out how they might relate to icons in popular culture (like Spider-man, or Venom!).
