    Workshops and Meetings Check out our Influenza Virus Resources Our sister organization SO SMART Partners PDB Proteopedia OMM Welcome At the Center for BioMolecular Modeling CBM teachers come first We work closely with talented science educators from across the US to create innovative instructional materials that make the molecular world real for students Synergy between Physical Models and Computer Visualization Tools We believe that the invisible world of molecules becomes real when students have an opportunity to hold physical models in their hands This is true for flexible models made from Toobers or accurate models made by rapid prototyping technologies In both cases the physical models function as thinking tools that stimulate questions that are then addressed using computer visualization tools The CBM is now on Facebook Like us on Facebook and keep up with the happenings and new developments within the CBM Keeping Busy Our hard working staff and students keep busy running Professional Development Programs for Teachers The SMART Team program for students A Protein Modeling Event for the Science Olympiad Competition The IES SUN Project for biology teachers Presenting various workshops across the country Borrow or Buy All models and activities created by CBM are available to

    Directors Tim Herman and Shannon Colton During the Modeling the Molecular World Part 1 course we will focus on connecting the macroscopic world in which students live with the invisible world of molecules We will begin by exploring general principles of chemistry underlying molecular structure and function and how these give rise to a complex array of molecular machines that work coordinately to maintain the living state We will focus on proteins and how they know what shape they should fold up into following their synthesis as linear polymers of amino acids We will use a variety of physical models in an effort to make this molecular world real We will also introduce the use of RasMol and JMOL computer visualization tools that can be used to expand on the concepts of protein structure that are initially created by the use of the physical models We will also discuss a variety of different teaching strategies and pedagogical moments interspersed throughout the workshop This workshop will also prepare teachers to either coach a Science Olympiad Protein Modeling team or to organize a SMART S tudents M odeling A R esearch T opic Team at your school Workshop Fees A 300 workshop
