There are many basic yet surprising things to learn about the inner workings of trees and flowers. How do plants turn carbon dioxide into food? How do flowers become fruits? Through the use of colorful interactive models, Namoo will help students gain a deeper understanding of the science at work. Namoo goes beyond the textbook! It is a multi-layered journey where you can play, experiment, and learn with ease.
Namoo features nine chapters. Each chapter is dedicated to a part of a plant and its function, including roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. Two chapters provide an in-depth look at cell structure and photosynthesis may awaken the scientist within!

Ratings and Reviews
Would like to see one on ocean life or elephants
I love this app! It’s so soothing and beautiful! My daughter found it when she was 6 and still loves to play it now as a 7 year old. It’s got beautiful animation, a good balance of text and action to keep the child engaged. Too many words would make it boring. The music and sound effects are also very beautiful and not obnoxious like so many other games out there that parents and kids have to listen to. This is not a textbook, but it’s a great start to get a child interested in biology. I wish they had more of these types of games.
Deleted app due to error but unauthorized in-purchase was made
If you accidentally installed this app (because it was app of the day) and then deleted it on the same day, be wary of your purchasing account in case there were some in-app purchases made later on. It just happened to me and I was able to get a refund through Apple Support.
Developer Response ,
In this app, there is NO in-app purchase. You were confused payment with in-app purchase. Again, this app does NOT contain any in-app purchases.
