Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab

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.

Click & Learn for iOS

Interactively explore topics in biology with the Click and Learn app. Topics include evolution, neurobiology, infectious diseases, and bioinformatics.

These mini-lessons were originally created for HHMI’s Holiday Lectures on Science DVD. A3MG was hired to bring them to the iPhone and iPad with this universal iOS app.

Users swipe through beautifully designed slides and tap to play supporting video clips from HHMI’s award-winning Holiday Lectures on Science.
