Several years ago we helped my son make a model of DNA using pipe cleaners and styrofoam balls. Now I've noticed that they sell DNA kits at Michael's and the Rag Shop. I don't know if that will be acceptable for the science fair though- the teachers might think it's not creative enough, especially when several children show up with the exact same thing!
