Applying advanced microscopy to reveal the structure and function of cells pre- and post-tasks


Cells are microscopically small yet complex features of living organisms. Students will explore the structure and function of cell components, and compare the similarities and differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. They will investigate how to mathematically convert between millimetre and micrometre units of length and use scale bars to estimate cell size.

This activity includes videos and interactives to test student knowledge about the appearance and function of organelles. It also has a digital worksheet that directs students to the first webpage for the resource and provides spaces for them to record responses.

Please note that the digital worksheet may not function correctly on certain tablets or mobile devices.
