Developer's Description

******* Winner of PeTAs Mark Twain Ethical Science Award ************** Winner of IEAR- Best Science App Award -2010 ************** Featured in The Sunday Times- List of Top 500 Apps across all devices ************** Featured by Apple New and Noteworthy & Whats Hot *******Frog Dissection from Punflay, is a greener alternative for teaching dissection in the classroom. This iPad app is suitable for middle-school students who are learning about organs and organ systems as part of their life science curriculum. Students can try dissecting a virtual specimen with all the trappings that come with the real procedure-minus the mess of course! Besides a virtual chloroformed specimen, the app comes with all the dissection tools and detailed instructions to complete the procedure. Once dissection is complete, the frogs organs are exposed for further study. Vivid 3D images will help students visualize the internal organs very effectively. For enhanced learning experience, the app also has information on the different types of frogs, frogs life cycle, anatomical comparison of frogs with humans, an interactive quiz and detailed descriptions of the organs.Key Features:Vivid 3D imagingStep by step instructions with voice overAccurate simulation of the wet lab dissection procedureContent validation by subject matter experts Anatomical comparison of humans with frogsComprehensive information on frogs organsClassification, lifecycle and organ functions of frogs Interactive quiz on frogsInformation on types of frogsFrog Dissection has received accolades from top review sites and educators who have found this to be an excellent teaching tool in the classroom.

A good introductory biology tool. -Washington TimesAll that is missing is the smell of Formaldehyde. - San Francisco Business Times A great first attempt at a virtual lab on the iPad.- IEAR A realistic digital frog dissection program.- School Tech Talk Frogs of the world, rejoice- Recombu Those that are in favor of the traditional dissection argue that there is no replacement for a real frog. Emantras Interactive Technologies disagrees and have created a quality frog dissection iPad app which can be used as an alternative to real frogs.-Technologyinclass.com It's a great addition to the tools available for teachers to help their students learn.- Padgadget.com A terrific way for students to learn about dissection.- Macgasm A great option for anyone who wants to dissect a frog, without actually dissecting the frog.-EduinreviewStudents who are budding animal rights activists can try to convince their teachers that for $2.99, it can maybe replace the real thing in class.- NY1.com The concept is great and the execution was wonderful. I could see an entire line of dissection apps opening up with even more advanced options and social media studying groups etc Great work by Emantras Inc., and this is a must download in my opinion if you own an iPad.
