Now, ‘Antivirus’ reaches Europe, outlets in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, among others,” explains Miguel Pina Martins, CEO of Science4you.

How does a virus originate and how do they spread?” Antivirus challenges children to be true microbiology scientists and to create their own experimental culture media to grow microbes and fungi, using an antivirus kit, while teaching them how to build their own protective visor and mask. This toy also allows children to make their own soap and learn to wash their hands properly.
