Understanding how things mix and move is central to how nature and our world behave. Exploring how different things are made, knowing their components or properties and realizing what happens when you do something to them explains so many things that happen everyday. This explains hydraulics, pressure under water or even why JELLO is a thing.

Cells & Systems is exploring a hidden universe inside us, where cells are the superheroes working tirelessly in a high-tech metropolis to keep us ticking. It's like being a detective in a microscopic adventure, unraveling the secrets of life and learning how we are the way we are.
