DNA nanotechnology is used by researchers to build responsive hydrogels and even tiny controllable machines. DNA nanotech structures are designed based on the same base-pairing mechanism that keeps your DNA together in cells. Join us to learn more about how to design DNA nanostars, nanofrogs, and to build bracelets and keyrings with complementary sequence to your friends' and family's.
