On Saturday March 24, visitors to the RCSB PDB booth at the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering's EXPO DAY will learn about the basic building blocks of life by building 3D models of DNA and small proteins. They can also watch animations of 3D proteins and nucleic acids, and take home posters and other materials about these fascinating structures.

EXPO DAY is the grand-slam-science-finale to a week of big events at San Diego State University, Balboa Park and California State University San Marcos. Activities include building what could be the world's longest DNA model, which will be presented at the main stage at EXPO DAY.

Over 20,000 kids, families, scientists, engineers, educators, and other community members are expected to take part in this year's EXPO DAY, a free-to-the-community event! Visit for complete details.
