Virtual Cell is an immersive simulation that helps students learn biology.
The simulation embeds the student in a three-dimensional environment. Students pilot a miniature submarine that allows them to explore a plant cell. Virtual Cell provides three distinct modules covering standard topics that can be applied to any biology curriculum.
Key learning objectives include:
Students identify organelles using biological assays to detect marker substances
Students examine the electron transport chain and restore a mitochondrion to working order
Students diagnose and remedy problems in photosynthesis
Students observe osmotic pressure and destroy blockages to establish balance in the cell
Virtual Cell is easily integrated into both high school and college curricula.
