Kids are sure to enjoy the learning experience as they explore the colorful graphics and the interactive components of this beautifully designed science tool. The animations are age-appropriate and highly visual, allowing kids to learn through observation. Some of the wording of the vocabulary terms is a little awkward, but it's not enough to distract from learning. One of the best features of this app is that kids have an opportunity to openly explore and apply what they learn. It's not always clear how to interact with the graphics on the main screen, so a few audio hints could help. And the mini-quizzes could be improved with some more targeted feedback. But overall, How It Works? – Games for Kids to Learn & Discover is a terrific, kid-friendly way for kids to explore science.

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.
