DNA Starter Kit©

3D Molecular Designs’ friendly, interactive foam DNA model makes double-stranded DNA and single-stranded RNA. It will quickly capture your students’ attention as you introduce the basics of DNA structure then move into replication and transcription. This easy to build model is a perfect starting point that students can use to test their ideas and transfer their understanding to other, more complex models.

Groups of students can

  • Pair nitrogenous bases using the base pairing rule to create a sequence
  • Transform the familiar ladder shape of DNA with a simple twist
  • Explore the semi-conservative replication of DNA
  • Synthesize mRNA using sugar-phosphate pieces to show transcription

This easy to build model is a perfect starting point that students can use to test their ideas and transfer their understanding to other, more complex models.
