Active and Passive Transport: Red Rover Send Particles Over
I can move about freely, but you cannot. The class models the movement through cell membranes by way of passive and active transport. Members of the class play the roles of various proteins, atoms, compounds, and cell actions and mimic...

Diffusion: What Can Popcorn Teach Us About Diffusion?
Why do some smells, like popcorn, linger when others seem to vanish as quickly as they arrive? Learners think through that concept then complete an online simulation to determine if temperature and/or mass affect diffusion. Next, pupils...
