Travel deep inside a #leaf by #CaliforniaAcademyofSciences

Take a journey inside a leaf of a redwood tree! Enter the stoma and view the inside of a plant cell, translucent enough to capture light from the sun.  Fly by familiar structures like the nucleus and mitochondria, and settle into the chloroplast to watch photosynthesis at work. Reflect on the change in scale as you travel down to the molecular level!

In addition to the video featured above, we’ve created an annotated version of this clip for educators, labeling cellular structures and making notes regarding the making of this scientifically accurate animation.
