This interactive workshop will feature student models created by 3D Molecular Designs in Milwaukee. Participants will work with models that explore protein folding and emphasize how the sequence of the amino acids influences the folding pattern of the protein that determines its shape that in turn determines the protein’s function. Participants will then work with a second set of models, which focuses on the central dogma including both transcription and translation. The activities culminates when both these models come together to help students make the connection between DNA and RNA sequences and how they can impact protein functions. Examples of a variety of student-created products that can be used to document student learning will be presented and discussed.
