Materials List: Bacteriophage Builder Challenge

  • An assortment of building materials such as Styrofoam blocks, Styrofoam spheres, Velcro, tape, string, toothpicks, straws, and pipe cleaners; optional 3D printing pens
  • At least two or three different types of materials that represent “bacteria” such as fuzzy pom-poms, Velcro squares, and paper squares. Consider making these pieces large or purchasing large poms-poms in order to ensure proper scaling when comparing bacteria to viruses.
