Pathways with Friends

Directed by instructional cards, learners kinesthetically model cell communication by acting as components in a cell signaling pathway. Learners discover that cell communication is a multi-step process and that cells communicate via signaling pathways made of interacting components that sometimes change shape as a result of their interaction (conformational change).
