Great education!

My 6 yr old and I have been going through the app this week. We both learning things and I'm amazed at how well she's grasping the concepts thanks to the way it is being taught. Wish we could re-build the elements and even visualize the electron rings since that's what helps the whole periodic table make sense. Game tat videos. It's a shame I won't be able to show them to my nephew who's outside the USA.

Interesting if you love elements

This app is great for people who need a education or need to know about the elements. I feel like why do teachers not use this when they are teaching science or social studies so the kids get to no more about the elements. But I also think he should talk more about the gold because he only talked about it of ten minutes. He also makes learning fun for kids to learn and actually pay attention instead of passing notes or talking and telling jokes and some kids think about some of them a bit to wrong. So if I were you I would let tryout child watch this.

Great user experience - want more!

This app is so much fun to play and learn with. The interface is beautiful, and the ways in which the user interacts with the content is exciting. I didn't find the videos to be all that entertaining, and for the setting in which I was using the app, I would have preferred reading and viewing infographics over watching a video. I wish the interactive content were more extensive, because it was so enjoyable. Please enhance the app with TONS more molecules to build - that was the best part of the app!
