Journeys of Invention: Science and Technology From Past to Present provides a rich history of major scientific milestones with interactive, museum-like objects. The information is fascinating, and the graphics are engaging. It's nice that kids have the choice to either explore on their own or follow a themed journey, but since journeys are interconnected, it can be tricky to navigate. Kids may find themselves straying easily from a journey, losing a sense of the time line. There's a lot of text, so an audio option could help. And given the steep price tag, it would be great to see an opportunity for kids to apply what they've learned.

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.
