Electrophoresis Analogy

High schoolers use and listen to analogies to help them become familiar with electrophoresis. One example is: Imagine a huge swimming pool full of water and many entangled nets (this is the agarose gel). A dump truck comes along and dumps its load into one end of the pool. That load contains an extensive collection of long, skinny things of varying lengths and sizes (analogous to DNA of varying size).
