DNA Game & More
Game Content Overview
Game Board maps the entire DNA story: discoveries leading up to the DNA revolution in the RIM; tools used in DNA science and biotechnology in the center HUB; and major applications of DNA science plus related issues in the 8 HELIXES.
Pictures on every Claim Card are clues to the Card’s content; hopefully, they will also inspire you to create productions based on that content.
All-U-Need Booklet contains Message from DNA Ahead™ Creator, Rules, Strategy and Other Tips, Titles + Votes for Claim Cards, and Sample Ballot/Wins Tracker.
Hands-On Picture Science (HOPS) approach prompts viewers to observe clues, think critically, and create productions that spread DNA savvy. HOPS can be used for any science topic with any group anywhere.
Claim Cards for Board Spaces elaborate the DNA story. Chuckle at the humorous pictures as you ride the minds of scientists (and of heroic molecules and tools).
