Teach DNA structure with our interactive model!
With this exciting model your students make base pairs and combine them to make a model of the DNA double helix.
They learn about the importance of: complementary base pairing, nucleotide structure, double-helix shape, 5' and 3' ends, antiparallel strands, sugar-phosphate backbone, purines and pyrimidines and DNA sequence. Makes a great resource for advanced or introductory level lessons.
You can make as long a DNA model as you like with any sequence you wish you use!
Takes about 20 minutes to make a 12 base pair model.
Dimensions: DNA strand: 43cm/17in long/10cm/4in wide.
Includes full colour Powerpoint classroom presentation.
Download includes: instructions, colour and mono model templates and Powerpoint file.
All you need: paper, scissors and tape.
