Drama of photosynthesis

Students in Bryce Carlson’s AP biology class dramatically performed the plays they wrote detailing the enzymatic processes of photosynthesis. One group demonstrated the cycle metaphorically with the adventures of some cookies, including Cookie Monster and an electron Uber driver. Another acted out “the challenges and tribulations of life through the microscopic realm of the cell,” where electrons fought to complete an epic journey and a lovers’ quarrel took place within the Calvin cycle.
