We are all equally involved, responsible and know all different fields even though each of us has his own special field of interest. The first practical employment of balloon molecules in a scientific lecture was part of a presentation workshop of young chemists in Hamburg. From this day on both our presentation techniques and the measure of employment of the models have been constantly broadened.
Rolf Eckhardt is a PhD chemist and has intensively looked into the presentation of topical research steps with modelling balloons. He writes various publications about the didactics of balloon molecules. Due to his connection to topical research he constantly expands the measure of employment of our sculptures into new fields.
Asif Karim is a student of chemistry and got into balloon sculpturing as a pupil. After joining the
workshop of Prof. Dr. R. D. Fischer (University of Hamburg), he got to know Rolf Eckhardt and Marcus
Rehbein. Together they developed the idea to use modelling balloons to visualise chemical structures.
Asif Karim very often gives lectures at universities about the applicability of modelling balloons to
visualise structures. His ability to entertain and perform supports his lectures.

Marcus Rehbein is a PhD chemist and employed as a student teacher in Buxtehude where he works on using modelling balloons for the visualisation of simple, student-appropriate models. Through the usage of modelling balloons in his lessons he expands the didactic know-how of the group.
