Energy Factory


energy factoryA collection of ideas I had for creating an info-graphic of the Krebs cycle for students to learn or revise by.

The purpose of the info-graphic would be to help the student understand what exactly is going on with the complicated cycle, using the theme of a factory setting to show visually what is happening at each stage.This could even be expanded so people moving the atoms and objects around are enzymes – basically their role in the cycle anyway.

There were several key points I wanted to keep in mind for the purpose of the graphic;

Understanding over memorization

Keeping it visual

explain how & why

creating context

creating connections

It is my hope that helping students to understand the process and what is happening will stick in their minds for longer than mere memorization, giving them better context to remember the harder stuff – names of enzymes and stages of the cycle for example.
