Ratings and Reviews
This app is nicely done with a lot of information. It is a helpful addition to the classroom or for young scientists. The approach grabs the attention of students. However, I would enjoy more interactive games and more video.
Awe inspiring look at the rocks that make up Earth
A beautiful and informative app filled with amazing images and interactive elements. Everything from how fossils form to different types of rocks and minerals. A tour of Mount Rushmore and tons more. Students and teachers will love this.
