Cell Membranes and Cell Transport

Cells are busy places! How do things move around in such a tiny environment? Introduce young life scientists to the types of cellular transport through a video that is part of a large biology playlist. Animated characters demonstrate how various substances enter and exit the cell, as well as the energy requirements of each type.
