Is It Any Good?

Our review:

This clever app is a wonderful way for kids to explore life aboard the International Space Station and learn the importance of growing food in space. Tasks and rewards keep kids motivated to reach the end goal. Each task is clearly explained in text and audio, and accessing support materials is as easy as tapping a link. It's frustrating at times to navigate through the station under zero gravity while searching for supplies, and a little more help when kids are floating around unsure how to proceed would keep them on track. Also, the audio can be a bit glitchy. Overall, however, Space Science Investigations: Plant Growth offers an excellent combination of space science, life science, and experimental design -- all for free!

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.
