Is It Any Good?

This is a useful resource with a variety of strategies for teaching kids about fundamental science concepts, and the addition of a few more games and improved quiz questions would make it even better. The lessons contain age-appropriate content, the supporting graphics do an excellent job of illustrating concepts, and the mini-games target concepts from the lessons, giving kids an opportunity to apply what they learned. Though the quizzes that follow each lesson are good practice for kids, there are only three quiz questions, some of the wording is awkward, and quiz scores can't be saved. The experiments include a materials list, instructions for setup, an opportunity for kids to make predictions, and a summary of the results. Some experiments would benefit from additional guidance regarding setup and analysis of results, and some of the grammar is incorrect. Despite its drawbacks, it's a unique, targeted resource.

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.
