    Mitochondria are organelles, or structures within a cell, found in the cytoplasm of a cell that combine glucose with oxygen to create ATP – the raw, primary source of energy the cell uses to move, divide, contract, and function.  They are, indeed, the “power houses” of eukaryotic cells. 

    Interestingly, mitochondria are semi-autonomous with regards to the cells they are enclosed within.  This means they are not fully dependent upon the cell to divide and grow.  They have their own DNA, can make their own proteins, and reproduce through celluar fission.
