Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab

The Lizard Evolution Virtual Lab was developed by a team of scientists, educators, graphic artists, and film makers to explore the evolution of the anole lizards in the Caribbean.  A3MG provided interface design and graphics as well as the programming of BioInteractive’s latest virtual lab.

The virtual lab includes four modules that investigate different concepts in evolutionary biology, including adaptation, convergent evolution, phylogenetic analysis, reproductive isolation, and speciation. Each module involves data collection, calculations, analysis and answering questions.

Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab

A3MG worked with a team of scientists, science writers, and teachers to produce this virtual lab for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Department of Science Education.  A3MG created the 3-D illustrations, interactive sequences, and overall graphics.  The lab was programmed using web standards allowing it to run on most modern browsers and mobile devices including the iPad.

The Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab will introduce you to the science and techniques used to analyze the forms and structures of organisms—in particular, the pelvic structures of the threespine stickleback fish (Gasterosteus aculeatus). The lab includes three experiments in which you will collect and analyze data using photographs of living fish specimens and fossils.

Migration Policy Institute Videos

A3MG was hired by MPI to create video graphics and edit two videos for their online ELL Information Center. The videos include graphics with a cohesive look throughout. The maps, graphs, and charts are animated to highlight the data points as they are mentioned. B-roll and photos are interspersed to add interest to the presentations.
