Explore different cell samples under the microscope to identify the differences between eukaryotes and prokaryotes. Build the structure of an animal cell and choose the internal organelles of four specialized cells.
University / College
What components make your cells unique? In this simulation, you will learn to distinguish the structures and internal organelles of prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Diving deeper into eukaryotic cells, we highlight the physical structures of the two main types and the function of each internal organelle.
Apply cell theory
Observe different samples using a microscope and determine whether the organisms are unicellular or multicellular. Each principle of cell theory will be introduced, to help you learn the differences between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. With your own knowledge, you will classify the cell samples into prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
Differentiate between plant and animal cells
Have a unique experience differentiating between two holo models of a plant and an animal cell. Match different organelles considering their function with the type of cell they correspond to. Watch out, maybe some of them are so versatile they can be spotted in both types of cells.
Build a fully functional animal cell
In matching internal organelles to their corresponding animal cell, you will learn about the function and importance of the nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi apparatus, lysosomes, ribosomes, centrosomes, and mitochondria. Finally, you will determine which cellular structures are unique to specific animal cells such as sarcomeres, tight junctions, axons, dendrites, and the extracellular matrix.
At the end of this simulation, you will be able to:
Explain cell theory
Describe the main differences between the prokaryotes, eukaryotes, plants and animals
Describe the different intracellular and extracellular components forming eukaryotic cells
At the end of this simulation, you will be able to:
Engage students in science through interactive learning scenarios. Simulate experiments, train lab techniques, and teach theory through visual experiences that enhance long-term learning outcomes.
