The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) offers lots of science resources, including videos, animations, games, and lesson plans.  Here, I want to spotlight an animation that details the inner workings of a cell.  The animation is approximately 8 minutes long and is from Harvard University.  Concepts illustrated in the animation include everything from translation to actin filament formation.  It is a great resource for high school and undergraduate students.
