The organic molecules that make living things are a bit less frightening when we understand a little about how they work.
Here we show how Lux Blox trigons can be used to understand the building blocks of life.
The video demonstrates how Lux Blox can model the basic structures that make things like viruses, cells, and microscopic organisms.
The trigons can give kids the opportunity to model chains of amino acids, called polypeptides, and how these β-strands (beta-strands) can be folded into the β-sheets (beta-sheets) that build the β-proteins (beta-proteins) that build things like viruses and cells.
Trigons come in black, white, and olive green and are available here
