Ever wonder how many
frogs are sacrificed each year in middle- and high-school biology
classes? In an effort to save frogs and comfort the squeamish,
a team of educators led by Curry School professor Mable Kinzie
created "The Interactive Frog Dissection: An Online Tutorial,"
better known as "NetFrog," in 1994. Since then, it has
received more than 930,000 visits and more than a dozen awards.
The site uses photos, videos and text to lead users step-by-step
through a dissection procedure, either as a preparation or substitution
for the more traditional -- and messy -- hands-on approach.
