Took a while to find but here is a link to the simple experiment for creating organics from inorganics. It seems to the sticking point for many creationists and its easy for any uni or highschool to recreate.

Thanks for the link! Unfortunately, the experiment described here has been pretty heavily criticized because it assumes early-earth conditions that probably didn’t exist (creationist are very happy to point this out). However, the page after the one you point to mentions a number of other possible sources for organic molecules, and highlights the fact that this is still an area where science has quite a bit of work to do.
