When was the last time you folded a piece of paper to make a fun shape? Maybe you made a paper plane or tried origami to make a swan. Believe it or not, the building blocks inside your body also need to fold into the right shapes to work properly.
In Venom! you can build your own protein channel from paper. On the computer you can play the Venom! invader game and test your skills by battling scorpion venom. While you play and experiment you can also learn about proteins, the tiny building blocks that make all living things work.
Want to learn more? With the click of a mouse you can get into the science behind Venom in the Protein Science sections.
