Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A lot of useful information about some of the most important theories and laws of science is available, but kids probably won't be very excited by it. The cartoon-style graphics might help make the content appealing to kids, and the videos break up the text and provide excellent visual support. Unfortunately, the app misses an opportunity to connect to current, real-world scenarios, and there aren't any suggestions for hands-on lessons or labs that apply the theories and laws. Also, the elevated vocabulary and lack of accessibility features limit the audience to kids who read really well and who already know a little about the science involved.

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.
