DNA Discovery Kit© The Discovery Approach

The Discovery Approach to investigating the structure of DNA allows students, with the DNA Discovery Kit©, to discover the double helix in much the same way as Watson and Crick did with their cut-out pieces in 1953. In addition to gaining an understanding of the structure, this approach enables your students to experience science as a dynamic, creative process, in which groups of people work together — or in competition — to construct an understanding of the natural world. The story of the discovery of DNA’s double helical structure is a compelling example of real science.
