Balloon DNA

For our first assignment at the MIT Media Lab, all the new students were asked to teach one thing to one other incoming student. Arlene Ducao taught me a really easy way to make tasty, savory roast soup. I taught Dan Novy how to model DNA with balloons.

 

Based on the design Dan Hagon and I developed at SciBarCamb 2011. Dan provided the knowledge of DNA. I provided the balloon engineering experience and design.
