In this activity students construct an analogy between the central dogma and a robot “running a program”. Students are first asked to place the central dogma (DNA-RNA-Protein) in the correct order and then asked what robot parts or actions are similar to the central dogma. This lesson is a great way to establish a concrete understanding of the central dogma, the purpose of DNA in controlling cell behavior, and for identifying misconceptions in student understanding of DNA or the central dogma.
