Virology Science Fair Project

How the Body Fights a Virus

How the Body Fights a Virus | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Discover how the body's immune system works to protect us from viruses. See how certain cells recognize and attack foreign invaders, and how other cells track down and devour the virus.


The hypothesis is that the body's immune system can recognize and fight off a virus.

Method & Materials

You will make illustrations, role play, and discuss the meaning of the human immune system.
You will need a large red cloth, construction paper, chalkboard, double sided magnets, markers, and scissors.


Through this experiment, students will gain a better understanding of how the body's immune system works to protect us from viruses. They will be able to make and explain illustrations that show how viruses can appear as foreign invaders in the blood, and how certain cells can recognize and attack the foreign invaders.

Why do this project?

This science project is unique because it combines both visual and role-playing elements to help students understand how the body's immune system works.

Also Consider

Experiment variations could include researching and discussing other viruses that can break down the body's immune system, or exploring how the body's immune system responds to other foreign invaders.
