DNA Model with Paint 9-102
DNA Model with Paint 9-102Target Grades: 7-14
Students construct this DNA model from six different molecular pieces, collectively depicting sixteen nucleotide pairs worth of DNA (8 AT and 8 GC pairs). The base pairs and the sugar and phosphate units are each manufactured as single plastic units. Because there are molecules may be painted by students either prior to or after assembly. Model with paint includes six paint colors, paint thinner, and six brushes. A laboratory exercise and problem set accompany the model. After completing the building exercise and problem set, students will have a better understanding of the double helical structure and the function and properties of DNA. Contains instruction manual, 144 plastic DNA building pieces, rod, spacers, and wooden base. Building and painting project ideal for six students.
