Ms Figiel's Year 11 Biologists have been studying the structure of DNA and have used sweets to make models to help them understand and remember it.
The strawberry laces represent the sugar phosphate backbone of the DNA and the dolly mixtures are the bases.
After joining the sweets together in the 'ladder' formation, they twisted the structure to form the familiar DNA double helix... before scoffing the lot!

The class are now trying to come up with ways they can include sweets in their all Biology lessons! Definitely tastier than plastic molymods!
