The K’NEX DNA, Replication and Transcription set is designed to aid in teaching the structure and function of the nucleic acid molecules that make up DNA (deoxyribonucleic acids) and RNA (ribonucleic acids).
The Teacher’s Guide provides lessons designed to take students through three instructional modules:
I. DNA Structure
II. Replication & Transcription
III. Coding, Translation, and Mutations
Excellent demonstration tool at the elementary school level.
Set includes 521 K’NEX parts – enough to build 19 DNA and mRNA models, up to two at a time! Supports 2 – 3 students working as a team. Grades 5 – 12. Building instructions and teacher’s guide aligned to national standards included. Packaged in a strong storage tray with snap-on lid.
STEM Education focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts taught through problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and critical thinking. STEM Education requires students to be active participants in the learning. K’NEX® models offer hands-on learning opportunities that encourage scientific inquiry, investigation and experimentation. Our inquiry-based lessons challenge students as they build, investigate, problem solve, discuss and evaluate scientific and design principles in action.
