In conjunction with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), the team delivered a set of recommendations for the development of a new 3D biomolecule education program targeted towards year 12 chemistry students. To generate these recommendations, the team conducted interviews and surveys of local VCE teachers, reviewed previous VCE Exams, and investigated Visual Molecular Dynamics and its various features. We determined the specific topics of biomolecules that students struggled with and how animations would be able to help. Ultimately, our recommendations will help develop a program that will make complex concepts of biochemistry more accessible to students and educators alike.
