What are S.M.A.R.T. Teams and how do I get
a program running at my own school?

"Understanding the relationship between a
molecular structure and the function it carries out in a cell is the
core of what might be called "the molecular logic of the living state".
This understanding is often very difficult to achieve for many students
because the molecular world is invisible to the unamplified senses.
Physical models can play an important role in making this invisible
world "real". These physical models are especially powerful when used in
conjunction with computer visualization software and inquiry-based
Topic) are teams of high school students
and their teachers who are working with research scientists to design
and construct physical models of the proteins or other molecular
structures that are being investigated in their laboratories. SMART
Teams use state-of-the-art molecular design software and rapid
prototyping technologies to produce these unique models."
