Discover DNA with this larger than life model – Attach, Assemble, and Twist!
Congratulations, you have DNA! That’s right, since you are a living organism you have the very small (smaller than even a microscope can see) building block of life that makes us all human, yet with your own unique characteristics. As common as DNA is, it can be a tough topic to understand, but that is where this colorful and attractive DNA Model comes into play! For ages 8+.
You’ll immediately become engaged with this friendly, interactive, foam model of DNA that measures 2 feet tall and 6 inches wide. It’s easy – just attach and assemble the DNA and then twist to transform it into the familiar double helix. Just like a puzzle – and just as in nature - this DNA model fits together only one way: Adenine (A) fits only into Thymine (T) and Guanine (G) fits only into Cytosine (C) on the sugar-phosphate backbones. Build a biologically correct DNA model that can be used in a number of fun and educational ways, from a show piece at your science fair to a mobile that you can hang from the ceiling. The possibilities are endless!
The DNA Model Kit includes:
- 6 Blue Foam Cytosine (C) Bases
- 6 Red Foam Adenine (A) Bases
- 6 Yellow Foam Thymine (T) Bases
- 6 Green Foam Guanine (G) Bases
- 2 Grey Foam DNA Backbone Pieces
- Bag of 24 each Blue & Yellow Sticker Bands
- Instruction sheet
