Frog Dissection

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 frog’s 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.

$3.99

Frog Log

Hear the frog calls; view the high quality scalable images; read information on the frogs' habitat, distribution and breeding. You can even use the app to help us by 'logging' occurrences of frogs in the wild. The app’s 'sightings' function allows GPS-enabled devices to send in the coordinates of frog sightings. This will help scientists build a record of the distribution of frogs in Tasmania, an important task as the number of frogs is declining.
