Animal Cell Airport

Cell Membrane - Security
00:03
The cell membrane is the barrier between the outside and inside of the cell. Therefore, it is like airport security because it also is the barrier between the rest of the airport and the entry area. Like the cell membrane, airport security makes sure harmful people or people with harmful substances don’t get through the airport. Airport security can also represent all of the security in an airport, not just the screening area. For example, security guards that walk around patrolling or even the fence and wall surrounding the perimeter of the airport are all airport security functions that filter out dangerous passengers like the cell membrane of an animal cell.

Cytoplasm - Check-in
00:18
The cytoplasm is like airport check-in.The cytoplasm supports all of the other organelles and allows food and oxygen to pass through it. Check-in supports the rest of the airport and allows passengers and baggage to advance to security and customs. Without the cytoplasm, the animal cell would not be able to retain its shape meaning the cell would not function properly. Without check-in, the airport would not function either because the passengers need a boarding ticket and they need to check in their baggage, so it goes to the proper destination.Therefore, the cytoplasm and check-in are very similar.

Nucleus - Air Traffic Control Tower
00:34
The nucleus acts as the brain of a cell. It is responsible for directing the other organelles on what to do. So that means that in an airport the nucleus would be the air traffic control tower or control tower. The control tower directs all flights and makes sure that it is safe for a plane to either take off or land. The control tower is also responsible for determining the flight statuses and then telling a different department that puts it on the flight status boards. The workers of the control tower also work closely with the pilot of a plane and give it safety information. These are all examples of how air traffic control directs the other departments. Therefore, the nucleus is like air traffic control.

Ribosomes are tiny organelles that are the site of protein production. There are many ribosomes in an animal cell. Therefore, the ribosomes are like the passengers in an airport. Ribosomes help keep the cell going and without passengers, an airport would not have the financial means to support it. There are also many ribosomes in the cytoplasm and cell membrane since the cytoplasm and cell membrane are check-in and security that makes sense to have many passengers there.

Ribosomes - Passengers
01:05
Endoplasmic Reticulum - Airport Walkways
01:05
The endoplasmic reticulum helps with the packaging of proteins and is a network of passageways through which proteins from the ribosomes move within a cell. These passageways are like the walkways and escalators that take passengers, crew, and baggage to the boarding area. All of the walkways and escalators are like the roads within an airport and roads are similar to the endoplasmic reticulum because they help the proteins move around.
01:19
Golgi bodies - Departure lounges
01:19
The Golgi bodies accept proteins from the ribosomes and endoplasmic reticulum it then packages them and “labels” them off for delivery. The endoplasmic reticulum is involved with the transport of the people and the ribosomes are the passengers, thus concluding that the Golgi bodies would be the departure lounge and boarding area. The departure lounge accepts passengers and crew and then boards them onto their flights by checking their boarding passes, ID, and passports. The workers in the departure lounge then scan or stamp your passport which is like labeling you off for your flight.

Mitochondria - Runways
01:35
The mitochondria would be the runways and the area where an airplanes taxi for takeoff. The mitochondria are the energy centres of the cell. They break down the food particles and help the process that goes to carry out the other functions of the animal cell. The runways at an airport are like the energy centres in that they help the plane take off. Before a plane starts taxiing the baggage is put on the plane from the outside and that is carrying out the other functions like checking in.
01:53
Vacuoles - Maintenance Department
01:53
Vacuoles store extra waste and is like waste disposal in an animal cell. That is similar to the maintenance department at an airport. The maintenance department is where the airplanes get cleaned and ready for the next flight. The workers at the maintenance department take the garbage off the airplanes the passengers may have left behind. They also refuel the airplane and make sure that the airplane is still safe and working at its best. The waste from an airplane is also stored at the maintenance building until a special safety service takes it away. The airplanes toilet tanks also need to be emptied and that is also the removal of extra waste. That is how the maintenance department at an airport is similar to the function of the vacuoles.

Thank you for Watching!!

I did not use any other websites or books other than the lesson. I used the knowledge of an animal cell and organelles from the lesson as well as the knowledge I have from flying! All pictures are from web searches and the cell is from the lesson!

MLA Example of a photo I used BrasilNut1. "Fun Fact: Dallas Love Field was the first airport to install moving sidewalks." The Dallas Morning News. 23, July, 2018. https://www.dallasnews.com/news/2018/07/23/fun-fact-dallas-love-field-was-the-first-airport-to-install-moving-sidewalks/. 26, October, 2020.
