iCell for iPad Gives Students 3D Views of Cells

Screen Shot 2013-01-07 at 5.58.16 PM iCell is a free iPad app developed by the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology. The app provides students with 3D models of plant, animal, and bacteria cells. Each cell model can be viewed in detail by zooming in and rotating the model on your iPad. Students can learn about the parts of the cells by tapping on them to reveal their labels and a brief description of that part’s function. There are a basic, intermediate, and advanced description options. The  basic option is good for middle school students while the intermediate and advanced options are better for high school students.
