Reinforcing Science Education through Music, Song, and Animation


The Calvin Cycle

This exciting music video explains how a green plant takes in carbon dioxide from the air and uses the carbon dioxide, enzymes, and ATP and NADPH to create G3P, the three carbon sugar needed to make glucose. The rhyming lyrics, catchy beats and vivid animations describe carbon fixation, PGA reduction, and RuBP regeneration in a dynamic, memorable way. Keywords are spelled out as they are sung to reinforce terminology.
