See science for in a whole different perspective with the iPad or record and document learning even teach others…so much potential.
This is a very engaging app that covers a huge range of kitchen science. but don’t be fooled – you CAN watch all the videos for free. I love the way the app starts – with a pretend thumbprint scan then students select the games and videos from Bill Nye’s desk.
Get a different animated movie every day, then test your new knowledge with an interactive quiz that asks questions at all levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy
This app from the National Science Foundation gives access to engaging science and engineering images and video from around the globe and a news feed featuring breaking news from NSF-funded institutions.
This amazing problem solving /game app is actually created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Students have to prevent the spread of one of three epidemics by collecting information and data and analysing clues. Lots of fun and a very engaging learning opportunity.
This is a fantastic free mobile friendly web site designed for primary year students. It has lots of
“open and go” lessons that inspire kids to investigate and explore science concepts that are grouped according to year levels and subdivided into topic areas covering things like space, forces, plants and lots more. But what I like is the way not is organised. It opens with a BIG question like – “Where can you find whales in the desert?” then it has an exploration to inspire and inform, some experiments for students to try and then some resources for going further. I think this has lots of possibilities!
