Science Apps

Interested in science?  Need a little extra help with your biology or chemistry homework?  Here are some great apps to check out.

Cell and Cell Structure provides an overview of cells, cell parts and structure, and their separate functions.  The app includes 2D and 3D imagery, graphics, and detailed content.  Students can also access interactive activities, quizzes, and flash cards.

Frog Dissection allows students to virtually dissect a frog without the mess.  Dissection "tools" and detailed instructions are provided to complete the procedure.  Once dissection is complete, the frog's organs are exposed for further study.  3D images will also help students visualize the frog's internal organs.

Periodic Table of Elements includes 118 elements and their chemical symbols, atomic numbers, atomic masses, family names, classifications, electron shell configurations, and physical states under standard atmospheric pressure.

Science360 was created by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and provides easy access to engaging science and engineering images and video from around the globe, as well as a news feed featuring breaking news from NSF-funded institutions.
