Isygames has a new release to join their roster of Human Body apps called Heart and Lungs Lab. This new release is yet another fun educational app to join the likes of D. Bones and The Amazing Digestive Journey. Why does our body need oxygen? Why does your heart beat faster while exercising? Heart and Lungs Lab answers these questions and so many more. It is a pleasure to find an app that has the knack for presenting complicated concepts and subject matter in a fun, engaging way.
This app has a great range of usability and offers various levels of complexity so it can be played and enjoyed by kids as young as 5 all the way up to age 14. The younger kids can play at starting up the heart’s “pump,” while the older students can use the “Remember” and “Did you know?” tabs to develop a better understanding of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
What impressed us, and also lends credibility to the app, are the wonderful illustrations, as well as the text which was reviewed and approved by a professor of medicine. The play involves anatomically correct pictures and diagrams, making the experience very life like. Who knows, this may be your child’s first foray into the world of medicine and with so much content presented in such an easy to understand manner, there is nothing scary about going to or even becoming a doctor!
Find out what blood looks like under a microscope.
The circulation of the blood is both dual and continuous.
Find out how air moves in and out of your lungs.
The pulmonary alveoli: gas exchange.
What do cells do with the air we breathe?
The heart: the body’s engine.
Heart and Lungs Labs are comprised of three elements:
~ A school-level anatomy atlas providing detailed explanations for each of the organs making up the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
~ A fun and challenging practice test with two levels of difficulty.
~ Six different labs for learning about your heart and lungs through exploration and experiment
*NOTE – Early on, our student “testers” pointed out that when playing the “HARD” level of the game, it seemed all the answers were the first option. We brought this to the attention of the developer; we are happy to share that they had already caught it and immediately did an update to rectify the issue. The updated version should be out within a week. Well done, Isygames!
