Displeased with current dissection practices within Biology education, students of Pioneer Vicente Gasco, Zohary Oquendo and Bryan Berdecia, propose an animal-friendly, kid-friendly solution to replace living animals.

The Frog's snap-on design is anatomically-correct and easy to assemble and disassemble. The proposal also considers the possibility of replicating the 3d printed prototype using molds and materials closer to the organ textures and colors.
