Recommended Apps - Rat Dissection

From the people who brought us the award winning Frog Dissection App, comes a new interactive tool for the iPad which simulates a Rat Dissection. The app walks you through a series of steps on how to dissect a rat. All you have to do is simply follow the written instructions, along with voice-over, to dissect and explore the rat’s internal organs. Besides a virtual chloroformed specimen, Rat Dissection comes with all the dissection tools. The organs are all presented as 3D images. Users can tap on the individual organs to see what they look like from different angles. Detailed information on the organs is provided to help the student learn about their structure and function.

This is a useful app for showing the internal structure of small mammals or as an introduction to a true dissection. Good value at just €3.99. Click here to find out more and to download on iTunes.
