Split-a-cell is a game where players learn about the different steps in mitosis to better understand cell division. Players are taught about the order of cell division while playing a Tetris style game where players lead cells through the stages of mitosis. While dividing cells, players are familiarized with the position of the chromosomes and how genetic information is moved within the dividing cell.
The intuitive game play and stage changes as individuals progress allows individuals to make connections between the cell stage and the position of the chromosomes.
