‘Frog Dissection’ Makes Hands-on Science Hands-Free
Anyone who has suffered through a middle-school science course knows the horrors of frog dissection day. Even kids that are interested in science may have a hard time stomaching the stench of formaldehyde (or the scent of chloroform) and the certain knowledge that the creature they're cutting open was happily hopping around a pond only recently (or may even still be alive). In truth, this antiquated method of exploring science is a bit like reinventing the wheel. Although it is certainly important for a new generation of aspiring scientists to understand the inner workings of biology, there's really no reason for innocent animals to suffer or die in the name of science anymore. And there's at least one awesome app that looks to change the way kids approach the act of dissection.
