Description:

In this activity, by the Concord Consortium's Molecular Literacy project, students explore the "many biological systems that can be thought of as tiny (but very accurate) molecular machines that use chemical energy to do certain jobs." Upon completion of this activity students should be able to interact with nanomachines; compare nanomachines to macroscopic machines; and determine what the nanomachines have in common. The activity itself is a java-based interactive resource built upon the free, open source Molecular Workbench software. In the activity, students are allowed to explore at their own pace in a digital environment full of demonstrations, illustrations, and models they can manipulate. In addition to the activity, visitors will find an overview of the activity, a test and rubric, central concepts, and their correlation to AAAS standards.
