  • Our story begins with cells, the things that all living organisms are composed of. Here's a bit of background: cells are the basic unit of structure and function, and cells come from preexisting cells. Let's introduce the scientists who contributed to the Cell Theory.
  • Hi! I'm Robert Hooke. Have you ever wondered where the term cells came from? Well, you've come to the right place. I was examining a cork under a microscope one day, and I realized the things that made up the cork looked like the rooms that monks live in called cells. I wasn't expecting the name to stick, but it did! 
  • He's not the only famous scientist named Robert! My name is Robert Brown and I am responsible for describing the details of the nucleus of the cell. I also observed the way that microscopic particles move, which is now referred to as Brownian Motion. 
  • Hello! My name is Matthias Schleiden, but you can just call me Matt. I discovered that all plants are composed of cells and declared that cells are the building blocks of all plants, like the ones below me! 
  • Hi, my name is Theodor Shwann. Much like Schleiden, I made the conclusion that all animals are composed of cells. Billions, even trillions of them! Also, the cells in your peripheral nervous system are named after me; Schwann cells.
  • My name is Rudolf (not the reindeer) Virchow. I was one of the first scientists to accept that cells are formed from preexisting cells. This is a key part of the cell theory!
