Students at Austintown Middle School recently created a giant inflatable animal cell.
The students were assigned a cell part and instructed to construct a larger version of that part for the inflatable cell structure. Once inside the cell, which is 16 feet long and eight feet wide, visitors can view the different parts of an animal's cell structure. The students will be presenting their work from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Jan. 3 at the middle school.
The students also created a PowToons presentation, which is Cloud based software creates animated presentations and videos, about the functions of the cell parts. These videos are on YouTube, and within the large scale cell model, people can scan a QR code with their mobile devices and be able to watch the corresponding video.
