When life gives you a cold, make rhinoviruses!

RJ made a rhinovirus this morning and took it to school for news.

His teacher met him at the door, and said “RJ! That’s lovely! Is it a sea urchin?” He said “No, it’s a rhinovirus. Those are protein spikes. They get in your nose and make you sneeze and cough. We all had them this weekend.”

It’s going to be a long 13 years of school…

RJ created his own rhinovirus, complete with protein spikes.
