Kids can gain real enthusiasm for all things nano by watching the informative, sometimes funny, videos and doing the activities on DIY Nano. This ingenious, uncluttered, easy-to-use app can help kids understand how tiny things act differently and can be very helpful to humans and nature in ways that are so much easier to understand than one would think of words like "nanotechnology engineering." From videos about nanocoatings and talking about a billionth of a meter to experiments about how gummy shapes are built via chemistry, this app is hugely interesting. The only small critique is that many of the ingredients or tools needed for the experiments aren't typically found in the average home. Still, DIY Nano is simply an excellent app about a complex topic for kids of a wide age span.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
