Your first step 1. Hop into your cab of sun and take a trip to Chloroplast County.
Chloroplast County You will search for thykaloids here that are found in stacks called grana’s. You will need these thykaloids to capture the energy from your cab to move into the Water Ways.
Water Ways Here you will find a plant and pull it up to find how water is absorbed by the roots and conducted throughout the plant. Next you will move to Carbon Dioxide Canada.
Carbon Dioxide Canada Here you will enter a lab and breath out and see your carbon dioxide that will be a main source in your journey. Then drive on to Pigment Play land where you will be absorbed by the pigments.
Pigment Play land Here you will need to find 2 types of chlorophyll which are A and B. You will then need to see how they are arranged in their photosystems and the different wavelengths that go into them. Next move onto the Wavelength Rainbow.
Wavelength Rainbow Here you will find useful and not useful colors for pigments. You will need red and blue but don’t worry about the green because its useless. Now go into Molecule Mania
Molecule Mania Here you will find how molecules will function by transferring hydrogen and electrons You will also need to search for ATP here. Next move to Light Reaction Paradise.
Light Reaction Paradise You will watch as you are transformed into chemical energy and carried by ATP and NADPH into Calvin Cycle Central. It might take a couple times before your transferred though
Calvin Cycle Central You will now see how Six molecules of Carbon dioxide each combine with a 6 molecules of a 5-carbon sugar to form 3- carbon molecules. The ATP and NADPH that carried you are now going to convert the 3 molecule into a 2 molecule to produce the main treasure Glucose.
Glucose Now that you have found have the glucose is made you have won and Your award is some sugars!
