Hands-On Molecular Biology for STEM Scholars

My students need protein synthesis models to practice kinesthetic, hands-on learning of NGSS-aligned topics regarding the central dogma of biology.

My Students

I teach Principles of Biomedical Science to 45 9th grade students enrolled in the STEM program for high achieving students in our public district. This program required students to engage in a lengthy application process for entry. The district is collaborating with a nearby university in order to offer college credits to our STEM scholars upon completion of their high school education. All STEM scholars qualify for free and reduced-price lunch.

My students and I work together to establish a classroom environment that is conducive to growth, and which embodies the dualities of rigor and collaboration.

Many of my students are interested in issues concerning social justice and human equality. Our classroom is diverse and multicultural. However, the Common Core cultural value at my school is community. My students prioritize community and support one another. They stay late to help their peers, and when asked “what value does your education provide you with?” many students answered that they will use what they learn in school to help their families, friends, and community.

My Project

Students enrolled in biomedical science are expected to be fluent in the mechanisms involved in the central dogma of biology. Gene expression is a complex biological process, and the molecular processes can be difficult for students to visualize.

Many of my students are kinesthetic learners, and they thrive when provided with hands-on, collaborative puzzles.

This kit from Carolina Biology will allow my students to establish enduring understandings of the process, and allow them to work through the material at their own pace. This kit will not only be a wonderful vehicle for the content, but also offers an opportunity for students to practice their 21st-century skills.
