If you want some great information

As a substitute teacher I always inherit a classroom. And most of the time there’s a lesson plan and great reference material but when I don’t get those things.....well it can be a nightmare. This is why I like the NSF site!!!! Great information about the topics that’s engaging and compelling. It gives science students another reason to get excited about science which makes my job more fun too!!!

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!!

Science 360

The main focus of this free educational APP is to inform people of breaking news in science and engineering it is funded by The National Science Foundation (NSF) its captivating pictures of bizarre animals and beautiful landscapes accompanied by interesting and useful facts are what make this app truly engaging. It also provides educational science related videos, and is very easy to navigate and read so it is ideal for children. This is a great APP for both teachers as well as those individuals who like to be well informed or are generally interested in science. However it would be better if they tried to make it more appealing to general audiences it seems most people that this APP would appeal to are educators or people who have an interest in science. Over all I would recommend this APP to everybody, the information provided is very relevant to our world and therefore very beneficial.
