U.S. Army STARS: Anatomy is composed of 3 modules:

  • Quest: uses our unique progression system to ferry students from exposure to the material to complete mastery over the course of 30 handcrafted levels. Our physics based puzzle game engages the students and instructs them on basic concepts, then our special activities test their knowledge and reinforce the content. Our “adventure map” approach to learning drives the students to explore what new and exciting ideas are behind the next level as they dive deeper into the skeletal system.
  • Explore: a detailed 3D model of the human skeleton with a name, pronunciation, and information for every bone, intended as a visually pleasing pocket reference for players. Our system is easy to navigate, making it simple for students or teachers to use whenever they need reference, visuals for a class activity, or are just curious. On supported devices (ARKit/ARCore required) you can move the skeleton out of the screen and into the classroom with an interactive augmented reality version of the model.
  • Challenge: comprises our fun and straight forward quizzes to test user’s knowledge of the human skeleton. Over 150 questions are broken up into 4 major skeletal groups (Arms & Hands, Cranium & Spine, Torso, Legs & Feet) with a master challenge to test comprehensive knowledge.
