Science for those who hate science!
This is the story about a curious robot that wants to be amused. In this STEM game you can take him to mysterious planets and show him some marvellous things. You’ll have fun abducting different creatures, and learn some science while you’re at it.

The app includes:
-- mini game that explains what sound is
-- mini game that explains what temperature is
-- mini game that shows how small atoms and molecules are; what is millimeter, micrometer and nanometer
-- mini game that explains what gravity is and how planets form
-- mini game that shows what things are made of
-- short story with poems

* * *
There's a robot who lives in a far away constellation
That robot looks like a dog, but not a Dalmatian.
He knows everything about water, steam and ice
How to drive a flying saucer
And how to find nanomice.

* * *
Explanations are included.
Just tap the little robot when his nose is flashing and read all about you see.

Let your screen time become educational time!

Introducing CLASSROOM MODE!

With this new version of "Hi Nano" teachers can use the app to explain certain scientific concepts to their students.

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words. We believe a mini-game is worth 2000 words. Just give an iPad to a child to play, and he or she will never forget how particles behave at different temperatures, what sound is, how small particles are, etc.

Just tap the teacher icon in the main menu and pick any planet on the map. Now you can access all the colourful interactive learning scenes without having to play the whole game from start to end.

"If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next generations of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words? I believe it is the fact that all things are made of atoms — little particles that move around in perpetual motion. In that one sentence, you will see, there is an enormous amount of information about the world…"
Richard Feynman

Fantastic and intuitive educational game

At first some of the science themes aren't very obvious but you they start users learning about the powers of 10 (magnification) and what objects you can see at the millimeter, micrometer, and nanometer scale. You learn a bit about molecules, phase transitions at different temperatures, and much more!

Pros:
- great for young children who might not understand names or more complex concepts
- fun and short

Cons:
- some of the concepts aren't too obvious, even as a scientist (post grad school) I had to think a bit to catch a concept
- UFOs are fun but not very scientific

Recommendations:
1. Having a label or description would be invaluable for connecting concept to future knowledge
2. It would be cool to have an info button where users could learn more about the concepts they are seeing

Thanks for the great app!

Developer Response ,

Hello! Thank you very much for the review, it was very important for us to hear the feedback.

"It would be cool to have an info button where users could learn more about the concepts they are seeing" -- we agree. And actually there is such a button. You can tap on the robot sitting in the corner of the screen and get all the info. We have made this obvious in the latest release.

We hope you'll find the app more useful now. Good luck!

Improved “Curious Robot” 2 B further improved

If our species is to survive ... thousands of inspired games like this must be written for the new generations !
Positive notes:
1. - the newly added explanations are very beneficial, well done, yet more explanations and facts can be added about inorganic and organic molecules, minerals, and bacterial, vegetal and animal biochemistry.
2. - the general flow and logic of the game have been substantially improved ...
3. - the way this game introduces the (sound) wave concept is absolutely brilliant !!!
4. - the chemical bond puzzles is a good idea and could be extended to the cellular structure !!!

Suggestions/ Critique:
0. - please think of more (fundamental) ways to make the game more playful !
1. - could you find a way to introduce the element atoms and their structure — possibly from the inside of a star, gradually stepping to the cooler plasma in the photosphere ?
2. - the liquid state animation should be greatly improved
3. - cannot talk about thermonuclear reactions BEFORE states of aggregation !!!

Similar playful games should be created about the...
00. - the logic of everyday life decisions
0. - the scientific method and design of the experiments
1. - fluid dynamics, reactive propulsion and flight
2. - nuclear reactions that generate all elements, stellar life-cycle
3. - laws of all energy conversion — photoelectric, piezoelectric, induction etc. etc.
4. - cell structure & life cycle/ cell physiology.
5. - maglev and associated propulsion
6. - relativistic time travel
etc. etc.
