Description

This colorful and attractive DNA model makes it easy for students to understand the common, but difficult, topic of DNA structure.

Build a biologically accurate DNA model, over 2 feet tall, that can be used in a number of fun and educational ways:

  • Show the right-handed double helical structure of DNA
  • Incorporate STEM concepts through the use of modeling
  • Illustrate the base-pair relationship between purines and pyrimidines
  • Engage your students with this friendly, interactive model

It's easy — just attach the nucleotide bases to the backbone, pair the DNA strands, then twist them to form the familiar double helix.

Just like a puzzle — and just as in nature — this DNA model only fits together one way: adenine (A) pairs with thymine (T) and guanine (G) pairs with cytosine (C) on the sugar-phosphate backbones.

The DNA model includes everything you need to build one (1) biologically accurate DNA model, an instruction sheet, and 10 fun facts about DNA.
