Ward's® Protein Synthesis Magnetic Model

Avg. Ratings: 3.5 (2 Reviews)
Ward's Protein Synthesis Magnetic Model helps students visualize the steps of protein synthesis.

  • Model Works on Most Whiteboards
  • Reusable
  • Large Enough to View from Anywhere in the Classroom
  • Model Saves Time Spent Creating Lesson Demonstrations
  • Teacher’s Guide with Instructions Included
  • For Grades 9—12
Teachers draw a picture of a cell on the board, complete with nucleus, ribosomes, ribosomal subunits, and a membrane. Using the magnetic pieces and Velcro in the kit, they can manipulate these large, magnetized models in and around the drawing to clearly illustrate the different phases of the synthesis process.

The models include a DNA double helix that separates, a complementary strand of mRNA, and four tRNA models, all of which fit together like a puzzle. Four amino acid models and three peptide bonds are also included. Developed by educators, these large, magnetized models are easy to view from all areas of the classroom. Partial assembly is required.

Fantastic product - My students always tell me that this really helps them visualize and reinforces the processes of transcription and translation. it's reusable year after year and well worth the money if you don't have the time/resources to make one yourself. My only complaint is that the white doesn't show up great against the whiteboard. Would be better if it was a different color.

No, I didn't recommend
Protein Synthesis model doesn't stick - This model is great to have students visualize and describe the stages of Protein Synthesis however the ability to use it effectively is compromised by the fact that the magnets are not strong enough to support their own weight and that of the model.
In addition, the adhesive on the magnets does not stick to the model very well. If the magnet issue was remedied I would have no problem recommendin
