    I purchased this for a biology class I taught two years ago and then bought two more sets this year. The students enjoy the Knex and it helps hands-on learners.

    I've been using the DNA K'Nex Kit for years with my 7th grade.  We go through the entire instruction book - first we build the DNA, then we replicate it, then we create the messenger RNA.  It really helps the students understand DNA structure, ATCG, and the replication process.
