ATP meter fun and trippy. Could be the catch for kids. The "cycle" however does not appear cyclical through its presentation. An inset could be created (like on driving video games where it shows the race path and where the car is) to give an idea of path of the cycle.

The first time I watched this it made it seem more confusing than it actually is, but after a couple times I began to see it's benefit.

This is great. I will not just use this in my classroom, but also at home to teach my son. A great simplification to an otherwise complex lesson.

A very thorough picture of what occurs during the Krebs cycle. Includes a written description of each step and an energy meter for each step of the process.

This is a great way to actually show students what is taking place during the Krebs Cycle. This topic is a complex one and for the students to see what is being used and what is being produced by the reactions would go a long way in helping their understanding.
