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.
•Vivid 3D imaging
•Step by step instructions with voice over
•Accurate simulation of the wet lab dissection procedure
•Content validation by subject matter experts
•Anatomical comparison of humans with frogs
•Comprehensive information on frogs’ organs
•Classification, lifecycle and organ functions of frogs
•Interactive quiz on frogs
•Information on types of frogs

“Students 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.” Slapapp

Ratings and Reviews
I bought this app while looking for some educational and off the beaten path programs for my 3 and 5 year old. They absolutely love it! Its easy to use and as close to dissecting a frog as I'm willing to go. Not only does she get to experience the techiniques used but she also gets a new set of medical vocabulary terms. I would recommend this to anyone! Looking forward to dissecting a pig and worm.*hint hint*
