High School biology students are mandated to participate in dissection as part of the curriculum, at least in many states. However a growing number of students question the necessity of dissecting a (formerly) live animal when there are so many digital alternatives out there.

According to  VictoryVR, the makers of this tool, a single classroom spends upwards of $1,000/year on dead frogs for dissection. A virtual solution has an up-front cost that may be several thousand dollars but will begin to pay for itself over time.

There are also, of course, ecological as well as moral benefits as living frogs no longer need to be killed for the sake of education.
