Viral Hijackers

Students discover how viruses effect living organisms. Focusing on HIV, they explain why it is unique and how it attacks the immune system. They simulate the spread of viruses through an experiment using water containing sodium carbonate poured from one cup to another. Then they try to determine in which cup the virus began once the cups are tested with phenolphthalein.
