Biology Lessons From Emantras with Frog Dissection and Cell and Cell Structure Apps

Posted by Jennifer Allen on November 11th, 2011

It's tough to find new and exciting ways of educating children. Bringing subjects alive can make all the difference which is precisely where technology and, more precisely, the iPad can help. Courtesy of Emantras comes Frog Dissection and Cell and Cell Structure to make science that bit more interesting for middle school children.

Frog Dissection is a less messy and kinder to frogs alternative to the age old way of learning biology: dissecting a frog. The app offers vivid 3D imaging an helpful step by step instructions which help ensure that the app is an accurate simulation of the real thing. Interactive quizzes and plenty of information on the frog's organs and an anatomical comparison with humans makes this an ideal tool for science fans.

Cell and Cell Structure continues the biology theme by teaching everything possible about cells, their structure and their functions. Attractive graphics keep things interesting and interactive flashcards and quizzes reinforce the knowledge.

They're both out now. Frog Dissection is priced at $3.99 while Cell and Cell Structure is $1.99.
