Teach CRISPR, a revolutionary new genetic engineering technique in an interactive way!

Models are powerful tools for teaching science because they provide useful simplifications of structures and processes, helping to make the unseen seen and the complex simple.

CRISPR is a revolutionary new genetic engineering technique that makes editing genomes easy and inexpensive. It is based on a type of immune system found in many types of prokaryote.

Students first make 3D models of the components of CRISPR - the enzyme Cas9 and guide RNAs. Next, they use these to see how CRISPR is used to edit a genome.

The model also shows how CRISPR can be used to control gene transcription and to knockout genes. Making the model and carrying out the activity makes CRISPR easy to understand.

The Model Making Kit includes enough materials for students to assemble up to 10 paper models working cooperatively. The comprehensive Teacher Resource Guide included provides illustrated readings, activities, key vocabulary and an assessment, along with teaching opportunities for students to Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend and Evaluate their understanding of the concepts presented.

Models are powerful tools for teaching science because they provide useful simplifications of structures and processes, helping to make the unseen seen and the complex simple.

Based upon the NGSS Standards, students are expected to develop and use models to represent structures, systems and processes, and then provide explanations, make predictions, or investigate possible solutions.

Using the ready-to-use materials provided with each 3-D model set, students first assemble a model to represent a structure or an entire system as an aid to develop questions and explanations. They will then generate data and observations that can be used to make predictions and communicate ideas to others.
