With the weather getting cold, I started searching for indoor fun activities for kids. I found this interesting app called KidScience. It is an app showing you how to do some science experiments using materials you can find at home. It is a handy app for indoor science learning activity ideas.
In the app, you can search for science experiments by “Experiment Name”, “What is in My Pantry”, “Age Group”, “Science Type” (biology, physics, etc.), and “Amount of Time” the experiment takes. I particularly like the option of search by “what is in my pantry”. There are about 20 experiments in the app right now. From the app store introduction, looks like the developers are going to add more in the future.
Once you find an experiment you can do, you will get information on:
* Summary: what this experiment is about
* Age of kids
* Duration of the experiment
* Ingredients and steps
* Science behind the fun
There are also images and videos. In the Free version, only 3 experiments come with videos. You can buy the videos via In-App Purchase for $0.99 each. Once you paid for 5 videos, you unlock the full version, which gives you access to videos of all experiments.
There is a Featured section. Periodically, the app will feature an experiment. Now the Featured is Halloween Science Experiments.
This is an app good to have handy in the house. It is something you can refer to for some quick ideas of indoor fun. I checked a couple of the experiments. All can be done easily at home, with easy to find materials, like milk and food color, and very simple steps. There are experiments for kids age 2 – 10.
It is designed for iPhone and iPod, but also works on iPAD. It is FREE on App Store, with the option to purchase more videos via In-App Purchase.
I suggest start with the free version. If the kids like it, and you feel you really need the video, then you can consider getting more videos.
