This week, Miss Cross’ Year 11 class have been studying natural polymers as part of their Chemistry GCSE. They used their knowledge of DNA and proteins as natural polymers to create a bracelet showing a sequence of amino acids. Each bracelet was linked to a ‘theme’ and particular protein such as ‘Act now’ linked to enzymes, ‘Support’ linked to keratin and ‘Strength’, linked to actin. Pupils have been encouraged to give their bracelet to someone in need and to explain how they made it, along with their knowledge of polymers!
