Description Contents Teacher Resources
 
Don't be surprised if one of your students blurts "Now I get it!" while using our Flow of Genetic Information Kit. Students model DNA replication using color-coded, foam nucleotides and a placemat; model RNA transcription as they copy one strand of DNA into mRNA using an RNA polymerase; and model translation/protein synthesis as they decode the mRNA into protein on the ribosome placemat. Your students can then explore the folding of the protein into its final 3D shape using the popular Amino Acid Starter Kit.

Thank you for your business April 14, 2016
Reviewer: 3D Molecular Designs from Milwaukee, WI United States  
John, we're pleased you've discovered so many uses for the pieces in this kit. We encourage teachers to create their own activities in addition to - or instead of - using the resources that we provide with our products. We do regret that you find our shipping costs too high. We assure you that we only charge customers the ACTUAL fees charged to us by UPS and/or the US Postal Service. We continue to look for ways to reduce shipping costs while still ensuring that delivery is as reliable as possible. Thank you for your business!

Materials are good April 9, 2016
Reviewer: John Magee from San Jose, CA United States  
The materials themselves are really good. You will want o create your own lessons as the provided materials are very scripted. There is a lot you can do with the nucleotides in terms of getting students to evaluate models of DNA for certain features. For example give them a simple 8 piece flat foam dna model and ask them to determine which of the features of dna does it possess and not possess. The cost of the kits is what you might expect. The shipping costs are ridiculous. With some careful redesign of the packaging all the materials could fit into a much smaller box which would ship more cheaply. You will be amazed at how much you are asked to pay to ship foam.
