How does the world work? It’s a juicy question – but it’s all about States of Matter by Tinybop.
This app is designed to teach children how to understand the rudimentaries of physics, through experiments with ice cubes and gold coins, purple elixirs and helium gas.
You’re faced with your very own kitchen of contraptions from which to conduct your investigations.
Tip coins into a jar and then turn up the temperature to discover what happens to gold when the heat is on.
Watch colourful liquids bubble in their beakers, and observe rainbow-coloured gases emerge from the top. Molecules make up our world – watch how they move and react at different temperatures, and understand more about freezing and melting points.
The graphics are bright, colourful and accessible – and a powerful tool for strengthening the link between complicated concepts and their real-world effects.
Evaporation makes much more sense when you can form a strong link between substance and heat, and watch the resulting fumes float out of a beaker.
States of Matter makes physics fun! Watch popcorn explode out of the machine, and see cubes of ice become water sloshing in a beaker…
