Hi all!
I have a Highschool teacher in my lab this summer who is learning to run
SDS-PAGE and Western Blotting.  She wants to take this back to the
classroom but because of the potential toxicity of acrylamide, they can't
use that in the school.  So I wondered if anyone knew of an alternative
that could work for running a protein on a gel and at least getting to the
point of staining and destaining with it.  

Thanks for your help.
