Cut and assemble your own “working” model of ATP synthase, the last mechanism in the Electron Transport Chain (inside the mitochondria).  ATP synthase puts the third phosphate (P) back onto ADP to turn it back into ATP, the energy molecule used by most cellular processes.

NOTE:  This project is included in the “Cells” curriculum and in “Mapping the Body with Art” module 1.


If you need help assembling the model (more than the printed instructions that come with the model) you can use this link to access a video (posted on my Cells playlist) where I demonstrate each step of assembly.
