    Default Chemistry Project (horse-related)

    This is my chemistry project. We have to make a model of a compound and fill out an index card with its information (honors students have to write a short paper on it...woo). My compound is gamma aminobutyric acid, aka GABA. It's commonly found in Carolina Gold and other (illegal) calming substances. I used extra rosettes I had lying around from horse shows and skewers from the kitchen to put it together. Just wanted to share because this is probably the most horse-related project I've done for school
    Note: the pink ribbons are supposed to be red, but I ran out of red.

    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    Will you have a "key" showing what element each color represents, and what the skewers and yarn represent?

    Nice job

    Yep--I just have to do some more research on the actual compound so I can figure out which color goes with which element. I don't actually know yet which ribbon is which element...heheh Since I had some free time I just went ahead and got the model out of the way. I'll figure out the rest later.
