My students need beads and pipe cleaners to make DNA models.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach Living Environment to a very diverse group of high needs urban students. They need to pass this course in order to graduate and attend college.

Hands on activities help the students understand scientific concepts. Making a bead model of the DNA molecule will reinforce the structure and function of the molecule for my students.

Creating a bead model of the DNA molecule will assist the students in understanding the double helix and the hydrogen bonding of the paired bases. My students need beads and pipe cleaner to make DNA models.

Please assist my students by supplying them with beads and pipe cleaner so that they can make models of the DNA molecule.

Grades 9-12
Nearly all students from low‑income households
