== == Cilia are microtubule-based hair-like organelles that extend from the surface of almost all cell types of the human body.
Cilia are hair-like projections that move in a sweeping motion to move things along. For instance there are cilia in the female's fallopian tubes to sweep the egg towards the uterus, and there are cilia in the respiratory tract to sweep inhaled particles back up towards the mouth to get them out of the lungs.
Hair-like extensions that protrude from the surface of some unicellular organisms and from some cells in multicellular organisms.
A cillia is a small hairlike structures that move small particles of dirt out of the respirtory system(small hair looking things that move clumps of dirt out of the respirtoy system) :). LOL. Hope this answer helps with science. I know it did for me !!!

tiny hairs that trap pathogens.
Cilia are very small, hair like organelles. They line the surface of different cells and beat in a rhythmic way that produces waves. These waves move ciliate protozoans and liquids down the internal epithial tissue in many animals.
