Powers of Minus Ten: Bone is a neat iPad app for biology students. The app takes students through ten levels of viewing the inside of human bones. Students can zoom through and explore each of the microscopic levels. The imagery starts at the level of viewing bones from the outside and ends with viewing the atoms within the bones. A neat aspect of the app is that students can select “healthy bone” or “broken bone.” By selecting “broken bone” students can view a broken bone and see how it heals.
Powers of Minus Ten: Bone is the free (for now) follow-up to the Powers of Minus Ten: Cells and Genetics. The same concept of zooming through levels of microscopic views is used in Powers of Minus Ten: Cells and Genetics. Watch a short overview of that app in the video below.
