James Watson and Francis Crick worked out the structure of DNA in 1953. By using data from other scientists they were able to build a model of DNA. The X-ray data they used showed that DNA consists of two strands coiled into a double helix.
Yesterday, pupils in Year 11 built their own models of DNA using sweets! Mrs Carr awarded a 1st, 2nd and 3rd position for the best creation:
1st – Aman and Shivani
2nd – Ryan and Joseph
3rd – Ellie and Jessica
