Froguts – Award-winning science portal.

Froguts was created back in 2001 before Google, using only the very first iterations of Macromedia Flash (soon to be Adobe). It was a work of art and a labor of love to millions of school kids out there, and it was designed for simulative pedagogical accuracy, as well as an engagingly immersive learning experience. In 2002, I was flown to Paris, France to receive an award from Childnet International in the Individual category for my work. Eventually, with the help of my friend David Hughes, we built it out to be the largest educational dissection service endorsed by the National Association of Biology Teachers. David and I were even asked to present before the Dept of Education and Labor on the “Future of Technology in America”. We were also invited back to a summit at the Senate Office a few months later and gave a demonstration to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Millions of students have used this program worldwide, and still do, as we donated the very last executable of all our dissections to Animalearn.org’s Science bank after the decommission of Adobe Flash. May it live long and keep teaching freely.
