Science inspired colouring & origami

These special edition science colouring sheets are available to download, print, colour in and use them as papers for our virus inspired 3D origami project which you can watch as a video below.

Colouring sheets as pdf:

  • Coronavirus – The projections on the outside are spike proteins that allow the virus to latch onto host cells and them open for infection.
  • Bacteria – Bacillus, taken from the Latin word “stick” is a rod-shaped bacteria. Bacteria are micro-organisms that inhabit every environment on Earth: in soil, water, organic material, animals, humans and plants.
  • DNA helix – The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) double helix which stores the genetic code was discovered in 1953 by James Watson and Francis Crick.
  • Chromosomes – Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Each parent contributes one chromosome to each pair, so children get half of their chromosomes from their mothers and half from their fathers.
  • Organic building blocks – This design is inspired by organic building blocks that play a fundamental role in medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, and material chemistry.
  • Glucose – This design is inspired by the molecular structure of Glucose which is naturally occurring and is found in fruits and other parts of plants.
