Proteins are essential to all life forms, but how are they constructed in our bodies? Proteins are the body's worker molecules. Examples of proteins are hemoglobin (carries oxygen), collagen (our skinʻs structural support), white blood cells (antibodies), keratin (hair and fingernails), and digestive enzymes that prevent food from rotting in your stomach. Students work together (or at home if needed) to construct models of proteins from DNA to amino acids to protein structure and function. Understanding the importance of proteins in our bodies and how they are created from DNA and folded into specific shapes depending on their function is really fascinating to students. Did you know, artificial intelligence enables bioengineers to create real proteins in a lab! However, visualizing this process is a challenge for teenagers. In grade 10, Biology students get tested on this process during a State mandated exam. A hands on modelling activity helps students visualize and understand this protein building bio engineering process.
