The prize for the September Eye on DNA contest is a ZOOB building set. Maybe for the one-year anniversary contest next April, I’ll give away this $44.50 K’Nex Education DNA, Replication, and Transcription set.

Product description:

Set includes 521 K’NEX Rods and Connectors and a 24 page full color building instruction booklet. Builds 7 DNA and mRNA molecules. Build any one from 19 combinations at once. Wonderfully flexible set allows students to build and learn using models that demonstrate phosphate groups, deoxyribose/ribose sugars, color-coded hydrogen bonds, four codons and color coded nucleotides. Set supports two students working as a team.

I gotta have one!
