S441: The Biology of Plants in Splash Fall 2022 (Nov. 06, 2022)
Dang, plants are everywhere. Do you know anything about them? Do I know anything about them? No! How do roots sense gravity or know where to grow? How does photosynthesis work, and why does it involve quantum physics? If Venus Flytraps can grab things, do plants have a nervous system? Come and learn more about how plants work, and how we can engineer them to do our bidding. I will offer you a free rooted cutting from one of my plants (Genghis Khan or Pericles), if you can pot it yourself!

S347: Proteins! Enzymes! in Splash Spring 2021 (Apr. 17, 2021)
Proteins and enzymes are really important. Like, you would not be alive without them, and they are really interesting too. Want to learn why it's so hard to predict how proteins fold, why life might have originated from enzymes made of RNA, or how to make recombined proteins that cure cancer? Join to dive into the world of molecular biology. We will have a protein folding video game (Fold-It) competition at the end.
