You must have projects to complete in schools, and science assignments are always the most enjoyable. So you want to get the best grades and be the best student in your class? It’s all up to you. This is a fantastic tutorial for creating a rotating DNA model for a science project. Continue reading to find out more.
If you have all of the necessary components on hand, making a revolving DNA model is a breeze. So, if you want to create a rotating DNA Model at home for a scientific project, you’ll need the following materials:
- Soldering Rod
- Hot Glue Gun
- Color Paper
- Paper Straw
- Plastic Straws
- Colorful Beads
- Gear Motor
Steps To Make A Rotating DNA Model For Science Project
Given that you have the materials list let’s just get going on building a rotating DNA model. If you follow the directions, creating your rotating DNA model will be a breeze:
Step 1: Take a cardboard piece of size 27×15 cm and cover it with a green color sheet.
Cut out cardboard
Step 2: Now, take a paper pipe and attach plastic straws to it, as shown in the image.
Paste the straws
Step 3: Make small cuts at the outer end of the plastic straws and insert colorful beads onto them with the help of a glue gun.
Insert the beads
Step 4: Then, take a gear motor and attach a wire to it with the help of a soldering rod. Connect the other end of the wire to a battery holder.
Attach the wire
Step 5: Stick double tape at the bottom of both pieces and attach it to the cardboard base.
Stick it on the base
Step 6: Now, put a round button-like thing with a hole in the middle and attach it to the rotating part of the motor with the help of a hot glue gun.
Join the rotator
Step 7: Cut the appropriate size of cardboard to cover the motor attached and paste it onto the base.
Cover the motor
Step 8: Make a hole at the top covering piece and pass it through the previously prepared DNA set. Secure it to the rotating end with the help of the hot glue gun.
Attach the DNA piece
Step 9: Attach any AA or AAA battery to the battery holder. Your Rotating DNA model is ready to go.
