We start off with a full chapter dedicated to high school students focussing on the basic of what it means to make a (toy) model of moving particles. After this introduction to the molecular dynamics way of thinking we move on to a full-fledged force field (Martini). The other chapters will cover different apspects of modelling. These aspects are initial state building, two case studies (lipid-DNA nanoparticles and a nanodroplet on skin) and advanced analysis.
