Description: 

Mixing Molecules is a full-body immersive simulation demonstrating the collision of molecules at the nanoscale. The digital interface allows visitors to use their shadows to “push” animated molecules that are projected onto a screen in a darkened room. Visitors can manipulate the collsion of the molecules, speeding or slowing the formation of new compounds. The piece demonstrates the connection between the nanoscale - where individual molecules collide with each other - and the macroscale where many small random collisions appear as one larger, consistent motion.

About Exhibits

An Exhibit is a visitor experience that may take many formats such as a display of objects or interactive components; it may include graphic panels or multimedia components; it is usually an un-staffed visitor experience. A group of themed exhibits makes up an Exhibition.

The exhibits created by the NISE Network were developed through a process of prototyping, audience evaluation research, educator peer reviews, and in-depth partnerships with scientists.
