Why we love this app
This app is excellent for providing students with information about cell structures in an interactive, 3D environment. The ability to manipulate the cell structures, enlarging them and rotating them, as students learn about different parts of the cell is engaging and provides great interactivity.
What it teaches and how it works
Basic cell structure with information on different parts of a cell is provided in a 3D environment for plant, animal, and bacterial cell study and comparison of the three types of cells. The 3D models of the cell organelles have been updated and improved from an earlier version of the app. When students tap on a cell organelle, its name and a short description appear on the screen. The ability to choose from three levels of difficulty is especially adaptive for students in different grade levels. Zooming in on the cells and rotating them in a 3D fashion is a really engaging aspect of this app. DNA researchers at the HudsonAlpha Institute developed this app. Students will learn extremely accurate information about the different parts of a cell.
Why your kid won't be able to put it down
Kids will love exploring the cells in this virtual environment in ways that are not available in other situations. Being able to see these basic units of molecular structure and their parts gets kids excited about the wonder of science.
