Join 3D Molecular Designs at this year's WSST Conference in Wausau, April 7th- April 9thLearn more here and participate in workshops led by our Model Teachers using the exact kits and models we offer. Don't miss this chance to get experience with 3DMD kits with the guidance of educators who are intimately knowledgeable in modeling science concepts.

Check out the schedule below and find out more about all of the great sessions we are hosting at WSST 2022!

 


 

Thursday, April 7th

 

8:00am - Linking Laboratory Observations and Changes at the Molecular Level using Hand-Held Models

Presenter - Anne-Marie Nickel, Ph.D., MSOE

Explore new activities using the magnetic molecules in the Water Kit© to experience how particle interactions relate to laboratory observations. Featured Kits/Models: NaCl Lattice©Water Kit©

9:00am - COVID-19: Science to the Rescue

Presenter - Tim Herman, Ph.D., MSOE/CBM

Interact with models while you uncover the process of science that sequenced the CoV2 Coronavirus genome, determined the 3D structure of its spike protein, and delivered an effective vaccine using mRNA to combat the virus.

Friday, April 8th

 

8:00am - Hands on Modeling: Cell Synapse

Presenter - Tanya Monet-Bakken, Ripon High School, Ripon, WI

Model complex cell communication involved in homeostasis with our Synapse Construction Kit©. Examine how the cell membrane, transport proteins, and biomolecules interact to allow us to feel, move, and think. Featured Kits/Models: Neuron Modeling Kit©Synapse Construction Kit©

9:00am - Chromosome Connections Kit in the Classroom

Presenter - Stephanie Ruder, Case High School, Racine, WI

Model complex cell communication involved in homeostasis with our Synapse Construction Kit©. Examine how the cell membrane, transport proteins, and biomolecules interact to allow us to feel, move, and think. Featured Kits/Models: Chromosome Connections Kit©Dynamic DNA Kit©Flow of Genetic Information Kit©

10:00am - Introducing CRISPR Science into an Existing Curriculum

Presenter - Tim Herman, Ph.D., MSOE/CBM

Integrate gene editing into your existing lessons with two new CRISPR kits. Using the CRISPR Adaptive Immunity Kit© your students apply DNA basics to reveal how bacteria destroy invaders. Then, have your students think like bioengineers with the Making the Cut with CRISPR-Cas9 Kit©. Featured Kits/Models: CRISPR Adaptive Immunity Kit©Making the Cut with CRISPR-Cas9©
