From Particles to Properties: Bridging Scales with Water Kit© Models
Explore how Water Kit©
models can be used to foster an understanding of the structure of water molecules and how interactions between these molecules explain the properties of water observed on the bulk scale. This session is based on the Next Generation Science Standards MS-PS1-1 and HS-PS1-3. - Matthew Kern, M.Sc., Walworth Barbour American International School, Even Yehuda, Israel
Exploding Frog Eggs & Discovery of Aquaporin
Explore the 3D structure of aquaporin, the water channel. Tim will tell the story behind the 2006 Nobel Prize in Chemistry awarded to Peter Agree - and the exploding frog egg experiment that provided the first evidence that aquaporin was a water transporter. - Tim Herman, PhD, Milwaukee School of Engineering & 3D Molecular Designs Registration includes a free Water Student Modeling Pack©.
