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

“A good introductory biology tool”. -Washington Times
“All that is missing is the smell of Formaldehyde”. - San Francisco Business Times
“A great first attempt at a virtual lab on the iPad”.- IEAR
“A realistic digital frog dissection program”.- School Tech Talk
“Frogs of the world, rejoice”- Recombu
“Those that are in favor of the “traditional” dissection argue that there is no replacement for a real frog. Emantras Interactive Technologies disagrees and have created a quality frog dissection iPad app which can be used as an alternative to real frogs”.-Technologyinclass.com
“It's a great addition to the tools available for teachers to help their students learn”.- Padgadget.com
“A terrific way for students to learn about dissection”.- Macgasm
“A great option for anyone who wants to “dissect” a frog, without actually dissecting the frog”.-Eduinreview
“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
Whether you are an educator, parent or student, Frog Dissection will be a valuable tool to learn dissection the greener way!

Cute program - will keep students interested
Yes. It does have a few physiological errors. Something they can easily fix up. That said, it's a terrific primer for middle, or entry-level high school students wishing to learn about frog physiology. It also includes information about ecosystems, comparative anatomy (human vs. frog) and it's graphic enough and fun enough that it will guide a student through the first steps of frog dissection. It also has enough information in there that it could be used as a standalone to understanding frog dissection...without doing the dissection!!!! This is a great feature as there will be fewer frogs dissected!
This is a great buy! It is packed with awesome features like the games and videos along with interactive views of the organs, diagrams and so much more! I can't wait to use this in my classroom and I wish they had this when I was in school so I wouldn't have had to color all those sheets!
App is awesome!
I loved this app. It was a perfect tool for teaching kids in our homeschool co-op science class and was a very much loved app by my 3 year old daughter. She is now 5 and really wants to play with the app again. Wish it was updated to iOS 11.
