Cell and Cell Structure App Makes Biology Fun

I hated my freshman biology class! My professor was a billion years old and she made biology seem about as interesting as watching paint dry. Actually, one day, I did literally watch the paint dry on the wall across the hall instead of actively listening to my professor. Sadly, there were very few fun, interesting, and actually educational resources available in my classroom. If only my professor had an iPad.

Rat Dissection App Saves Rats and Teaches Science

In 2010, Emantras Interactive Technology saved frogs across the nation from becoming science project experiments, a.k.a. being dissected in biology classrooms. Personally, I had a traumatic experience in high school when I had to dissect a frog and there is no way in the world that anyone could convince me to do it again. So, when I heard about the Frog Dissection iPad App, I was very happy. Now, I’m even happier because Emantras came out with another anti-dissection app to help students learn about biology without harming an animal. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the Rat Dissection App.

The Rat Dissection App is very similar to the Frog Dissection App in that it allows you to “dissect” a rat in 11 steps and then to learn about its internal organs. You use real dissection tools, such as a scalpel, pins, and scissors, to dissect the rat. Then, once you have completely dissected the rat, you can look at the heart, stomach, intestines, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, liver, and spleen. Each organ has a detailed description of what the organ does and a realistic picture to show you what it really looks like.
