Standard

A standard CHaOS experiment, useable for all hands-on events.

Flat Cups (or how I learned to stop plastic waste and love the environment)

Public summary: 

Flatten a cup then stretch a cup and flatten it and stretch and flat. Look how plastic is recycled, what it's made of, and how we make things.

Flatten a cup, stretch a cup.

Chromatin Pipecleaner Models

Public summary: 

Humans have 19,000 genes. How are only certain genes turned on in each cell so that brain cells express brain genes, but not heart genes and vice versa? Here we make fun chromatin models to explore epigenetics.

Explore the world of epigenetics, using pipecleaners and corks to model DNA and the chemical changes done to it to turn genes on and off.
