The MSOE Center for BioMolecular Modeling is an instructional materials development laboratory focused on the molecular biosciences. We develop materials to bridge the gap between the research laboratory and the educational classroom. Working with researchers to develop molecular stories and with educators to create active learning tools, we invite students to join us in an exploration of the molecular world.

We believe that the invisible world of molecules becomes real when students have an opportunity to hold physical models in their hands. The physical models function as thinking tools that stimulate questions that are then addressed using computer visualization tools and activities.
