  • Building Serial Circuits Using 3D graphics and 2D electronic symbols, you will assemble different types of series circuits using wires, switches, batteries, and light bulbs. In order to better understand the difference between a series and a parallel circuit, build a circuit that illuminates two bulbs and observe what happens when one light bulb is removed.
  • Building Parallel Circuits Using 3D graphics and 2D electronic symbols, you will build simple parallel circuits by using wires, batteries, switches, and light bulbs. By constructing their own closed circuit with two light bulbs, you will develop a deeper understanding of series and parallel circuits and discover that electricity follows the path of least resistance.
  • Periodic Table of Element With this application, one can look up information on 118 different elements.
  • Virtual Heart Virtual Heart lets you explore multiple real-time views of the human heart.
  • 3D Brain Use your touch screen to rotate and zoom around 29 interactive structures. Discover how each brain region functions, what happens when it is injured, and how it is involved in mental illness. Each detailed structure comes with information on functions, disorders, brain damage, case studies, and links to modern research.
  • Essential Skeleton 3 Essential Skeleton 3 is a fully functional, self-contained app covering the essential anatomy of the skeleton.
  • The Human Body Explore a working model of the body. Every part is animated and interactive: the heart beats, guts gurgle, lungs breathe, the skin feels, and eyes see. Designed for kids to discover what we’re made of and how we work.
