You are going to build a model of DNA. You may use any items of your choosing, but the model must be 3
dimensional (not a poster). It may sit/stand on a surface or hang from above. Your model must include:

10 nucleotide – nucleotide “rungs” of the ladder
At least 2 of each base pair
Sugar-phosphate bond “sides” of the ladder
Helical shape
The following labels: Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine, Thymine, Sugar, Phosphate, Hydrogen bond (you should
keep the parts consistent in shape and/or color so you only have to label once)


Grading (test grade):
10 base pairs (10 points)
2 A-T pairs (10 points)
2 C-G pairs (10 points)
Helix (5 points)
Correct Lables (14 points)
Neatness (6 points)
Creativity (10 points)

I’ve wanted a DNA model for my room that I can keep from year to year, but they are very expensive to buy in
science catalogs. I am looking for some quality workmanship/creativity that I can keep and use over and over!!
