Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Science Quiz ? is designed specifically for young kids and isn't meant as an educational tool for anyone out of grade school. It's well-produced and offers enough instant feedback to keep young players engaged (like bells when they get answers correct and the sound of shattering glass when they're wrong). For competitive players, scores can be uploaded to a local or global leaderboard.

Is it any good?


Despite its funny name, Science Quiz ? is a good basic science teaching tool for grade school kids. It's a good looking game as well. Developers have taken the time to put a little polish on what is often a dull interface. Questions are written with younger users in mind -- although a few might aim a bit lower than necessary. It's an eclectic mix of questions, ranging from identifying which animals are omnivores to whether a doctor wears a white coat or white pants. The game also makes good use of sound to keep kids playing. They won't get a big head start on their SATs with this, but kids may learn a thing or two as they play.
