    Experiment
    In this short lab, students take a sample of cheek cells from themselves using a toothpick, put a stain on the slide along with the cheek cells, and observe the nucleus and cell membrane under a microscope. Students also answer analysis questions about the procedure and cells.

    Experiment
    The main objective of this Mini-teach is to explain how Vitamin E inhibits the oxidation of phospholipid and glycolipid molecules in cell membranes possibly preventing the aging of cells.

    Experiment
    Students make predictions about the effects of osmosis and design an experiment to test these predictions. The experimental approach is similar to the diffusion activity, but focused specifically on osmosis.
