The Creativity in Their Genes

18 Nov The Creativity in Their Genes

Edward de Bono once said, “Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. Sujata Archer, Science teacher seems to  have done just that when she assigned her Grade 10 Honors Biology students to make 3-D DNA models.  Some of these atypical submissions might just make you see genes in a new light.


“The DNA double helix structure contains our genetic code.  Creating a 3-D DNA model is a great way to learn about all the elements of this structure that builds our genes.  Using recycled material and other common items the students in the grade 10 honors biology created DNA models which shows their creativity and scientific understanding of the concept.  These DNA models range from jewelry to cushions. Creativity is in our DNA!”-Sujata Archer
