Discovering DNA

Alyssa Halcrow and Decker Lewis work together to build their model DNA

Students in biology class have been learning about genetics and DNA recently. In order to help her students understand the concepts like the double helix structure and base pairing, Mrs. Roberts has them building model DNA. They can choose the sequence, but the model is structured so that the chemicals can only be paired correctly. This is a great hands-on learning activity and just one example of the awesome things being done at our school on a regular basis.
