This is my first major win and i'm so excited to keep on doing it! (293 days ago)

Due May 13th, 2013 - Zoom in—way in—to a digital photo. Do you see the thousands and thousands of colored squares? Those are pixels. Thousands of tiny pixels come together to form one image.  When you zoom out you can see the whole picture again.

Similar to the pixels (colored squares) in a digital photo, millions and millions of tiny cells make up an entire organism. Every living thing you see is made up of cells—a colossal number of cells, each with a job to do and each connecting with other cells to create an entire living organism, including you.

Right now, as you’re reading this, over 100 trillion cells are holding you together. There could be 2-3 billion cells in your little toe alone!

Can you help us understand how small a single human cell is in comparison to an entire body? What does 100 trillion even look like?

In a short video that helps viewers understand these building blocks of life, give us your answer to the question How small is a cell?
