Transcript of Starbucks

There are many cell analogies you can make to help extend your understanding of the functions of different organelles such as comparing a cell to a factory, restaurant, school, hospital, etc. For this project, I chose to compare a cell to Starbucks.
Starbucks Manager (Nucleus)
Store Wall (Cell Wall)
Coffee Counters (Chloroplast)
In a cell, the nucleus contains most of the cell's genetic material, controls gene expression, and overlooks what goes on in the cell.
In Starbucks, the manager would represent the nucleus because the manager controls and overlooks activities going on in the store.
In a cell, the cell wall is a rigid layer of polysaccharides that provides structure to the cell and protection.
In a Starbucks store, the store wall would represent the cell wall because just like the cell wall, the store wall protects the store and provides structure.
In a cell, a chloroplast is an organelle whose main role is to conduct photosynthesis, where the photosynthetic pigment chlorophyll captures the energy from sunlight, and stores it in the energy storage molecules ATP & NADPH while freeing oxygen from water.
In a Starbucks store, coffee counters would represent the chloroplast because at coffee counters, drinks are prepared for customers to consume and gain energy.
Drink Tray (Golgi Apparatus)
In a cell, the Golgi Apparatus modifies, sorts and packages proteins for secretion.
In a Starbucks store, a drink tray would represent the Golgi Apparatus because they're used for packaging and storing multiple drinks for easy transportation.
Storage Room (Vacuole)
In a cell, vacuoles store food or any variety of nutrients a cell might need to survive.
In Starbucks, the storage room would represent a vacuole because the storage room is used for storing material that may not be used at the time as well as items that may be needed later. Also, the storage room may contain items that may be exported or thrown out.
Fuse Box (Mitochondria)
The mitochondria is an organelle that functions in energy production.
In a Starbucks store, the fuse box would represent the mitochondria because the fuse box produces electricity (energy) to power the store.

Baristas (Cell Membrane)
The cell membrane is the semipermeable membrane surrounding the cytoplasm of a cell. It controls what enters and leaves the cell.
In a Starbucks store, baristas would represent the cell membrane because they control what comes in through the counter (like money) and what exits (such as drinks, food, change).
Coffee Machines (Ribosomes)
In a cell, ribosomes bind messenger RNA and transfer RNA to synthesize polypeptides and proteins. In other words, ribosomes are the protein builders of the cell.
In Starbucks, coffee machines would represent the ribosomes because in a way, they synthesize and assemble coffee.
