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.

Science journal

This app allows you to use your cell phone to take scientific data of all sorts. I discovered it before my students turned in their Science Fair projects this year. While I did not instruct all the classes in how to use Science journal, I allowed some kids who had problems with their projects to use Science journal. It gave accurate and precise data. I just recorded the frequency of middle C on our piano and found it to be 259 HZ. The actual value should be 256. I have also done labs with it to record magnetic field intensity at different distances from a magnet. I would highly recommend it
