A computer Virus is a piece of digital code thatattaches itself to an existing program to spread across file systems and infect electronic apparatus. Viruses typically corrupt or destroy files on compromised systems, or degrade system performance.
A Trojan is a software program that looks useful or harmless, but that actually has a nefarious intent such as compromising security and allowing access to your system. Like the Trojan Horse from Greek mythology, once the innocuous looking file is brought into a computer system, normal defense mechanisms can be subverted.
The children and I recently had the pleasure of reviewing a great collection of items from one of out favorite companies, GIANTmicrobes! The first item that stood out to use was the Christmas Tree Box Ornaments. The kids were so fascinated by the miniature microbes and each one was decorated in holiday items. The little microbes are also designed to be hung on the Christmas tree, so the kids have reserved a special spot for them until they can be hung. We also enjoyed taking each microbe and reading about what they are on the GIANTmicrobes website.
In addition to the the adorable collection of Christmas themed microbes, we also received a couple computer viruses! The regular computer virus came in a key chain, while the Trojan computer virus was a large plush toy. I found these to be particularly fun to learn about and enjoyed explaining to the kids what they were. Lastly, we received this very interesting amoeba in a petri dish that is just absolutely great! It was so nice to discover the additional products that are available on the GIANTmicrobes website and add some additional learning resources to our collection. All of these items are designed so that my children are immediately intrigued and eager to learn all about them. We just love our GINATmicrobes products and we know your family will too!
