Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

Ky's Diary.....Cell Membrane Project

The structure of the cell membrane is mostly composed of phospholipids and proteins.
A carbohydrate chain extends externally from a phospholipid embedded within a cell membrane.
Cholesteral reduces the cell membrane permeability to most biological molecules.

This is one of the diagrams....
....that was an inspiration for the final result...
(made with styrofoam balls, toothpicks and pipecleaners)
which will become the prop for the oral report due today for Freshman Honors Biology. 

Good-Luck on that presentation!
