Cell City


Cell City is an innovative multimedia CD-ROM that helps users understand the operation of a cell by revealing its similarities to a city. Concepts such as energy generation and supply, manufacturing, communications, waste disposal and recycling are all clarified using this technique. Students explore comparisons between the cell boundary and city limits, mitochondria and power plants, the nucleus and City Hall, ribosomes and factories, and many others.

The program includes animations, videos, photomicrography, and interactive puzzles along with a full glossary of terms related to cell biology. Also includes extensive support materials such as lesson notes, worksheets and resource sheets, which can be reproduced on the user's printer. Grades 6-12.
