CDC-Disease cards

Make 754
The CDC made a series of cards you can collect, trade and share… of diseases. They were created to get middle school kids interested in science and health. Apparently they’re out of stock, but you can go to the site and download the files to print out. Here’s some West Nile.

    Reminds me of an idea I had to make protein trading cards. Facts on one side, hi resolution ribbon diagrams on the other. Hemoglobin, GFP, ion channels, enzymes. Sorta seemed like a silly idea until I saw these.
