Help me give my students hands-on experience building DNA models with K'NEX Replication and Transcription sets.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom is a place where all students can leave their problems at the door and learn about biology in a positive climate. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, yet all are excited to learn and work on engaging projects.
With new science standards in California, science classes are shifting from "learning about" to "figuring out." Science teachers today are challenged with finding new ways to provide students with opportunities to solve real world problems.
My students are ready and willing for these changes. There is no greater time to be a science teacher. I'm excited to offer some new, multi-dimensional learning experiences that help students deepen their understanding of science concepts from year to year.
K'NEX Replication and Transcription models in my high school biology class will benefit my students because it is a difficult concept to learn since they cannot see the molecules. This engaging activity will allow students to learn the parts of the molecule and actually show the processes we are learning about inside cells.
Learning is always more fun when it's hands-on.
Models in science allow students to absorb difficult concepts like a sponge. There's really no other effective way to teach it. Please help me give my eager students this opportunity to build K'NEX in biology class, they will love it!
