All living things are made of cells! Learn how they work and what they are made of! Cell organelles such as the nucleus, mitochondria, chloroplasts, ribosomes, lysosomes and many more can be found here. You'll be amazed at what happens in each of your cells!
Cell Biology Video Games, Virtual Labs & Activities
Watch a video explanation of osmosis with 3 real-life experiments and animations. Learn about hypertonic, hypotonic and isotonic solutions and watch osmosis in action! Then, test your understanding in a short interactive game to see if you are a master of the art of osmosis! Note: the interactive only takes a few minutes to complete.
Explore the microscopic world of the cell in your mini ship! Thwart Dr. Vial's evil plan to destroy cells as you battle against his army of cell-destroyers! Learn about cell organelle structure and function while having fun! You will learn about the nucleus, nucleolus, ribosomes, rough ER, smooth ER, Golgi, vesicles, lysosomes, and more!
The only barrier between the cell and the dangers of the outside world is the plasma membrane. Defend your cell by building a functional plasma membrane and thwart the evil plans of Dr. Vial to destroy all life on earth! Learn how the membrane works and its parts, including phospholipids, cholesterol, proteins, and carbohydrates. Also, learn about cell transport! Check out the Worksheet that goes along with the game (courtesy of Ms. Ginnie Crotts)!
