Whether it's the genetic code, an ancient language, or patterns of light in a distant galaxy, scientists often have to play the role of decoder. In this activity, learners create a code to send secret messages for other learners to decode. When learners set up a free account at Kinetic City, they can answer bonus questions at the end of the activity as a quick assessment. As a larger assessment, learners can complete the Bug Blaster game after they've completed several activities.

Learners construct an RNA Decoder Ring then use it to translate an RNA sequence into its corresponding amino acid sequence. This resource includes four different translating activities. In one activity, learners can see the effect of different mutations (substitution, deletion, frame shift) in the RNA sequence on the resulting amino acid sequence. Learners should understand the processes of DNA transcription and RNA translation prior to completing this activity.
