Abstract/Description: The major outcome of this project is "Protein Folding Toy," an iPad program (app) which is designed to allow children (ages 10-18) to interact with a system that behaves like a single polymer chain on the molecular level. The user can design a single chain, specifying a sequence of beads that each could be neutral (black), hydrophobic (green), or charged (red/blue). The app can then perform a Metropolis Monte Carlo simulation and allows the user to vary temperature in real time. Observed chain behavior depends on inter-bead interactions as well as temperature-dependent stochastic motions.
