Molecular magic: the wonderful building blocks that power life!
Kids | Tweens | Teens | All Ages

How does life work? Discover the molecular machines that allow our cells and bodies to operate at the smallest scale.

Join the Department of Biochemistry, Ōtākou Whakaihu Waka, to take a peek into the wonderful molecules that power life. From amino acids to zinc fingers, discover how life works at the smallest scale.

Build your own biomolecules, see how tiny structures enable even complex processes to occur within the cell, and learn how we use proteins to solve problems in the world around us (from washing clothes, to sequencing DNA!).
