An interactive new way to teach protein synthesis and translation!

Ribosomes are the factory workers of the cell! Your students will build their own model ribosome out of paper that they can hold in the palm of their hand. They will then use the model to make a peptide from five amino acids using transfer RNAs (tRNA) following a messenger RNA (mRNA) sequence.

"My students made these and learned so much!"
