DNA How is it packaged

Seed to STEM
Grade Level: Middle School

Overview

It is important for students to understand what DNA is and how all cells utilize it. One major difference in this “DNA lab” is that we attempt to build a physical and mental model of how DNA is packaged in cells.  After building a model, the students then attempt to utilize their newly acquired knowledge of the structure and packaging of DNA to determine how to get DNA out of the cell.
