Cell Explorer (Interactive)
This interactive activity adapted from the Exploratorium illustrates and describes the role of several important cell structures. Much like organs enable multicellular organisms to function normally, organelles enable cells to obtain and process energy, produce vital proteins, and replicate their genetic material, passing their instructions for life on to the next generation of cells.
Cell Division (Interactive)
This interactive activity adapted from the Exploratorium takes you through a process that is critical to life—cell division. Division enables cells to replicate their genetic material and then create an exact copy of themselves. Explore the individual steps of this process, by which single-celled organisms reproduce and multicellular organisms develop, grow, repair damaged tissue, and reproduce.
