Description:

In this outdoor activity, learners review the parts of the synapse and their functions by playing a game. The object of the game is to get as many neurotransmitters across the synapse to the dendrite without being caught (deactivated) by the enzyme. This game models the process by which enzymes break down neurotransmitters (e.g., acetylcholine) in the synaptic cleft.
