How We Get Our Skin Color Interactive

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 for HHMI BioInteractive.

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.

Exploring Transitional Fossils

GTI 3GTI 2

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.

Sorting Finch Species

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.

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.

Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab

A3MG worked with a team of scientists, science writers, and teachers to produce this virtual lab for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.  A3MG created the 3-D illustrations, interactive sequences, and overall graphics.  The lab was programmed using web standards allowing it to run on most modern browsers and mobile devices including the iPad.

The Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab will introduce you to the science and techniques used to analyze the forms and structures of organisms—in particular, the pelvic structures of the threespine stickleback fish (Gasterosteus aculeatus). The lab includes three experiments in which you will collect and analyze data using photographs of living fish specimens and fossils.

Awards: 2013 Communicator Awards; Silver Award of Distinction
