Great Content, Fun to Use!

If you are even a little bit interested in science, this app has amazing stuff on it! The videos and images that the National Science Foundation produces are pretty awesome. Even though they are geared for a high school-level audience, there’s valuable information for people no matter what their education level. I like being able to use the carousel to randomly browse items and then switch to the category search once I’ve found stuff I’m interested in. The partnerships with professional sports organizations like the NFL and NHL do a great job of putting complicated scientific concepts in the context of things familiar in everyday life. I definitely recommend this to anyone who’s interested in science!!

All of the other apps with good video content I have found cost money and don't organize the content by topic. This is completely free and was definitely designed for someone who knows exactly what topic they want for a school project. I am in middle school and this is a VERY helpful app to me. I would definitely recommend it. 😃😃
