Everything is made out of molecules!!!

On a nano-scale, you and this computer screen are made of the same things…..along with everything else in and around you!

To explore this amazing phenomenon, SFN was invited by CSIRO Education (VIC) to run a Molecular Sculpture activity for their Double Helix Science Club members. Using colour-coded ‘atoms’ made of plasticine, we sculpted everything from caffeine and TNT, to sucrose and citric acid, and many more…..!
