Award-winning science and education app developer, Isygames today released the Heart and Lungs Lab app for iPad. Combining interactive play with deep learning, the intuitive app promotes serious exploration of the physiology behind the heart and lungs in a fun and educational way. Tactile interaction (including tap, drag and drop), detailed images, and animation inspire curiosity and promote learning while making complex subjects easy to understand.
“Unlike many anatomy apps for kids which focus on the entire anatomy system, we’ve divided the larger subject into parts so that kids can get a comprehensive understanding of each stage of the systems,” says Isygames CEO Raquel Sanchez Anzola. “Breaking it down into parts helps kids learn each system thoroughly.”
On average, a person has over 20,000 breaths and over 100,000 heartbeats per day. The app lets users manually create breaths and heartbeats so they can learn the step-by-step processes of these intricate systems at their own rate. Among many other features, users can drag and drop oxygen into the capillary vessels to illustrate how inhalation supplies the body with energy and exhalation disposes of carbon dioxide; move the diaphragm to simulate breathing; and tap on features of the heart to see how it distributes blood through the circulatory system. Six Labs go into greater depth, exploring the cellular processes of the lungs and the heart. At all stages, kids can tap for detailed text.
A unique feature of this app is the six Labs which range from detailed physiological overview to microscopic analysis of the components of blood and other elements.
