Is It Any Good?

For a free tool, HudsonAlpha iCell is worth a try for kids who're interested in biology and cell structures. Three text levels make it adaptive for a wide range of learners, and kids will enjoy the colorful, interactive illustrations. There is plenty to learn about each type of cell, but, without challenges or activities to test their knowledge, kids might lose interest rather quickly. So long as kids aren’t looking for countless hours of engagement, the app is a decent tool for teaching kids about cells.

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.
