Storyboard Text

  • Well son, the plants take in sunlight through their leaves!  They make food through a photosynthesis! Sunlight is made into food through the calvin cycle !
  • They take in water, and sunlight, and produce Oxygen. 
  • Dad, How do all these plants survive? Like what do they eat? Water? Sun? Chicken?
  • Well back in my day I majored in Photosynthesology.  Basically there are some Chemical reactions that happen within the chloroplast 
  • The first stage transforms light energy  into chemical energy, stored to this point in molecules of ATP and NADPH.
  • Basically it takes CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) fixation and turns it into glucose (a sugar)
  • That's so cool.
  • So my dad told me about photosynthesis. It has two steps. !, is the calvin cycle ( Light- independent) and the light dependent . The light reaction takes place in the thylakoid .
  • So first of all- chlorophyll ( the green pigment in the leaves) absorbs sunlight !  The sunlight then gives energy to electrons and they are passed around the thylakoid 
  • Photosynthesis is so cool. Protons are being absorbed, but after the electrons are moving around they are added to a mix to form  NADPH!
  • So basically there are electrons traveling through the thylakoid. Then those electrons  get mixed to make NDAPH!( those are the photosystem 1 electrons) the photosystem 2 electrons are used to pass hydrogen into the thylakoid! next the hydrogen in the thylakoid is used to replenish photosystem 1s lost electrons. 
  • I have decided to study photosyntheology like my dad!  But to think of it i never got to the last steps of light reactions! 
  • So basically to replenish photosystem 2s electrons the splitting of water occurs. Then the oxygen and hydrogen are realease ( oxygen) then all the hydrogen that builds up are harvested by ATP synthes and then made into ATP. ATP and NADPH are used in the calvin cycle !
