Final Projects Precedents

My goal for my final project is to create an interactive tutorial for chemistry students to understand how soap is able to breakdown grease.  I hope to accurately portray molecular level interactions and apply it to a larger context.

Inspirations for this project:

Janet Iwasa is a biologist who uses animations to create visualizations of hypotheses of molecular biology and protein interactions. This series about membrane lipids shows how dynamic lipid molecules are when forming  a spherical micelle shape. Her other animated work is featured at

Macro to micro animation of a chemical reaction happening, with the written reaction appearing below as they occur in the animation.
