A dynamic model to show how ATP is made!

Just as a wind turbine harvests energy from the air, ATP synthase rotates within the mitochondrial inner membrane to produce ATP. What’s pushing the rotor? Protons from the electron transport chain of course!

Your students will build a model of this incredible molecular machine which even turns to push together ADP and phosphate to make ATP!
