Science → Chemistry → Miller-Urey Experiment

Chemistry → Atoms → How Atoms Form
A group of participants attempts to understand the purpose of the machine and the magnets given to them. After they put the magnets in the machine and turn it on, they notice that the magnets start to form complex structures on their own. The magnets symbolize atoms, and the experience suggests that compounds can form on their own over time, given a constant input of energy.
