National Library of Medicine Releases Three New Game Apps (Free) For High School Students
From the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland:
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Division of Specialized Information Services announces the launch of three interactive, educational iOS apps for students studying genetics, chemistry and environmental health science.
These free, readily accessible resources help students learn concepts such as DNA base pairing, the Bohr model of the atom and environmental conservation.
Designed in collaboration between high school educators and the SIS K-12 team, Bohr Thru and Base Chase reinforce content taught in the biology/chemistry classroom. A third game, Run4Green, reinforces concepts like environmental conservation and introduces students to the value of “green” alternatives.
Download these games on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch by visiting the NLM app page.
