Teaching my Research through Tactile Activity (Art and Science!)

I had the opportunity to present my research in a colloquium using a craft activity to supplement my presentation.  I decided to teach the audience to make modular spheres (like the ikea lamps) to demonstrate the idea of molecular self-assembly.  Everyone seemed to have fun, and I think it complimented the concept well.  It would probably be more appropriate for middle school students, but the grad students were obliging guinea pigs for my first attempt at Teaching Research Through Tactile Activity!
