“I teach a course called Advanced Chemistry/Biology, which is basically a project-based curriculum. I have quite an assortment of software tools available to me and I count Froguts as one of my most engaging and immersive. It is a powerful simulation that prepares students for actual dissections. And its virtual environment is engaging enough to teach organ recognition and their relationships to each

“I was very pleased to finally find a simulation that can serve as either an alternate or companion to live dissection! Froguts is comprehensive, easy to follow, and the images are extremely clear. I have used this product with my inclusion classes as well as my GT classes — the directions are easy to read and understand and there is plenty of room for extensions and enrichment. This is a must-have for any Life Science or Biology class.”
