This project integrated the use of the 3D printer into our Biology curriculum. Replication, transcription, translation, and mutation of DNA are difficult concepts for students to grasp, and printing 3D models helped make a very small thing visible to students. Our presentation will walk attendees through our project. Each class was divided into small groups of three to four students and was responsible for designing and replicating a three dimensional representation of DNA with a certain combination of proteins using a three dimensional printer. Groups printed manipulatives that were taken apart and changed to model the different DNA processes. We will talk about the ICE mini grant we received, the challenges we faced in project design, software and hardware issues we faced and the ultimate success of the project.
