Science Olympiad Protein Modeling Event
Protein Modeling is an event developed by the CBM for the National Science Olympiad. This event challenges students to explore protein structure/function by creating 3-dimensional models of proteins using Mini-Toobers, foam-covered wire that will hold its shape once folded.
Congratulations to the New Trier High School (IL) Protein Modeling event winners! We were very impressed with the overall quality of the models this year at the National Tournament. To view the results from the 2012 SONT Protein Modeling Event, please click here.
We encourage the continued use of the Molecular Stories that were the focus of the Protein Modeling Event. Links provided below will direct you to the pages created for these topics.
The Protein Modeling Event will be out of rotation for 2013 and 2014, returning to the event cycle in 2015 and 2016. This page will be updated summer 2014 (preceding the 2014-2015 academic year) to reflect the selected topic chosen for that year.
We look forward to exploring protein biochemistry with you!
