It's quite well-known these days that your smartphone is your most powerful learning tool if you are capable of using it the right way. So why don’t you use that very tool for your kid’s education?
Your kid would definitely love it if you are able to provide him/her with the right education apps based on the niche of his/her choice.
In this article, I am going to discuss 7 of the finest science apps that are tailor-made for kids in general. If your kid’s some sort of a science biz, s/he will benefit tremendously from them. Anyway, let’s take a peek without further ado.
1. The Elements
This is a beautiful app for students who are fascinated enough by the wonders of chemistry.
This iOS app gives students an exquisite introduction to the very basics of elements and also explains to them the role of chemistry in our daily life. The app also portrays elements in 3D which is something that ups the learning experience by a notch or two.
The Elements app is available on iTunes. You can download the same for your kid at a reasonable price.
Do your kid dream of being an astronaut? Yes? Then SkySafari’s the app you need to ignite the thirst of knowledge in the child.
The basic version of the SkySafari app provides access to more than thousands of nebulae, galaxies, clusters, skies and various other astronomical phenomena. The pro version goes a step ahead.
3. Rocket Science 101
You don’t have to be rocket scientist to get yourself involved with the Rocket Science app. In fact this app’s tailor made for kids such that a beginner can understand everything in a jiffy.
The Rocket Science 101 app is made by NASA and you know yourself that they are the specialist as far as space is concerned. The app can teach various space-related things like spacecraft, the history of science and a little bit of rockets science as well.
4. Video Science
Like the name suggests, this app has dozens and dozens of practical science experiment videos that are more than capable of bringing the classroom right into your home.
Dan Menelly who’s a science teacher at the UN international school is the host of these videos and he does a good job indeed. Worth checking out; there’s simply no doubt about it.
The app is available for free on iTunes.
5. Kid Weather
Kid weather introduces beginners to meteorology in a novel manner that’s more than capable of intriguing them to come back to it again and again.
Through the aid of the Kid Weather app, your children will be able to know how to plot data on a graph, get a detailed idea of the basic weather-related scientific terms and will also be able to convert temperature from centigrade to Fahrenheit and vice-versa.
6. Moon Globe
This app focuses more on the Moon.
The users will be presented with a host of interesting satellite images of the surface of the moon to pin-point perfection. The app also provides students with a little bit of history lesson; almost all of which is directly linked to that of the moon.
The app comes for free but for complete accessibility, you have to pay a little bit of money to the developers. The amount is reasonable; you can take my word for it. It’s available on the iTunes for iOS devices.
7. 3D Brain
The name of this app is enough to clear all details of its functionality to the users as a whole.
The app provides users with details of each functional regions of the brain in a three-dimensional visualization which can be comprehended easily within a jiffy. But that’s not all.
