1 Crate per Kit
The Molymod® Model Kit gives students the chance to explore amino acid structure using fun Molymod® models. Each tube contains enough parts to assemble 2 amino acids (students work in pairs). The models provide a strong 3D visual representation of an amino acid structure. Additional worksheets are provided for teachers to help explain electrons and bonds, amino acid structure, and protein folding.
Only to large dogs and certain squirrels. Consult your physician if you or a student has eaten a piece of molymod.
