March 22, 2012 in Education
[prMac.com] Fremont, California - Punflay, the educational and consumer application group of Emantras, is helping educators make learning science fun through its award-winning science applications Virtual Frog Dissection, Cell & Cell Structure, and Rat Dissection.
Virtual Frog Dissection:
Popular in classrooms across the US, the Virtual Frog Dissection app is the ethical answer to live animal dissections. Students can learn all about frogs and their biological functions, without the messy lab work.
"I have an autistic child in my class. It was great to see her excel at dissecting a frog, using this application. She was able to stay focused and worked through the application." Bobby Banks, Science Teacher, Lick Creek School
Cell & Cell Structure:
A fantastic app for middle school students, Cell & Cell Structure showcases the smallest unit of life, the cell. This educational app on cells will capture every student's attention and uses stunning graphics and interactive content to make even the most boring lesson, more fun.
"If your students use iPads in class and you teach biology or life science then you need the Cell and Cell Structure app. It's a great way for students to learn about cells and to compare plant and animal cells. My 8th graders loved using the Cell and Cell Structure app as we learned about cells and how they work. The videos showing the inner workings of a cell are spectacular and quite enjoyable. I highly recommend this app!" Al Gonzalez, Middle School Science Teacher, Chimacum Middle School
A great substitute for the real thing, Rat Dissection fits perfectly with middle school science curriculum. Students can now experience dissecting a rat without having to handle a real rat.
"(Rat Dissection) was so simple, I just launched it and handed my iPad to one of my teachers who's not very tech savvy, and he went to town. That's the sign of a well designed program." Jaden, AppAddict.net

Frog Dissection for the iPad is available for $3.99 on iTunes.
