This interactive animation about the biology of skin color provides stop points at which students can further explore the material through additional text and illustrations, videos, questions, and simple interactive widgets.
Narrated by the world’s leading authority on the evolution of human skin color, Dr. Nina Jablonski, this animation describes how and where melanin is produced in our cells and what factors affect our skin color.
A3MG provided interface design, graphic design, and the programming of this custom interactive video app.

Working with HHMI BioInteractive scientists, A3MG designed this poster illustrating Earth’s five mass extinctions and a potential sixth.
Discover the environmental factors that caused the five big mass extinctions in Earth’s history and which species they impacted.

A3MG designed and programmed this custom video player that features interactive quizzes for HHMI BioInteractive short films.
Embedded quiz modules test students’ understanding as they watch the short film on the rock pocket mouse—a living example of Darwin’s process of natural selection.

The Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab was developed by a team of scientists, educators, graphic artists, and film makers to explore the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean. A3MG provided interface design and graphics as well as the programming of BioInteractive’s latest virtual lab.
The virtual lab includes four modules that investigate different concepts in evolutionary biology, including adaptation, convergent evolution, phylogenetic analysis, reproductive isolation, and speciation. Each module involves data collection, calculations, analysis and answering questions.
A3MG designed and programmed this Web app for HHMI’s BioInteractive. Users press fossils of transitional creatures in the rock layers to reveal their characteristics and learn how each characteristic evolved.
The fossils of transitional creatures were key evidence for Darwin’s evolutionary theory, but none had been found when he published On the Origin of Species. Now, there are many examples of such fossils, which clearly show that big evolutionary leaps consist of many smaller steps.
This Web app was designed and programmed by A3MG for HHMI’s BioInteractive. This fun activity tests students’ ability to distinguish between two species of finches living on the island of Daphne Major based on how they sound and look.
A3MG designed this 5′ x 3′ graphic for HHMI’s BioInteractive booth at NSTA 2014.
