Inspiring Student Questions with a TWIST in DNA Modeling Karen Avery, Pennsylvania College of Technology & Dan Williams, Shelter Island High School
Inspire curiosity, questions, and discussion with 3DMD’s hands-on DNA modeling kits. Students will discover the dynamics of DNA – twisting, untwisting, separating for replication and transcription and coming back together. Upon examining the intricacies of DNA anatomy, they can analyze the cross-cutting relationship of structure and function.
