About Cellular Respiration: Glycolysis Virtual Lab Simulation
This short, targeted simulation is adapted from the full-length “Cellular Respiration” simulation.
What does it mean to work up an appetite? In this simulation, you will learn all about the first stage of aerobic respiration, glycolysis. You have been employed by the council to help a basketball team understand the science behind cellular respiration, so they can improve their training and durability! You will learn about how we metabolize glucose through aerobic respiration via the use of cutting-edge, futuristic technology.
Measure Blood Glucose Levels
After meeting the basketball players at the court, you will take their blood samples back to the lab. Using the blood samples you will investigate how different foods and exercise intensity can impact blood glucose levels. You will personally be involved in the experiment by virtually supplying your own blood sample to compare with the athletes’! You will learn how to measure blood glucose levels within a laboratory setting and apply this knowledge to answer engaging quiz questions throughout.
Evaluate the stages of Glycolysis
The experimental portion of this simulation is supported with strong theoretical explanations of the central steps of glycolysis, using 3D molecules and interactive feedback. You will use the futuristic holotable to inspect the molecules from each stage of glycolysis and explore the reactions that take place.
Help athletes perform during exercise
After learning all about the first stage of aerobic respiration and carrying out your investigation you are able to pass on your knowledge to the basketball players, giving them advice on how they can keep energized during their game and improve how they train in the future!
