Adapted from the original Powers of Minus Ten app to accompany Scientastic!, Powers of Minus Ten – Bone is an interactive game-based app that explores the science of bones. Seamlessly zoom by powers of ten into scientifically-accurate 3D environments of human bones, from bone cells and the extracellular matrix to molecules. See how broken bones heal and investigate some of the cool and weird cells found in the middle of our most sturdy organs.
