10 Great Android Science Apps for Students

We selectively compiled this list to comprise what we think are among the best science apps out there. Using these apps, kids will get to engage with a variety of learning tasks involving different science phenomenon and covering various disciplines including: astronomy, human anatomy,biology, and many more. 1- Kids Measurement Science Lite “Young scientists learn to analyse the physical world by measuring across a variety of domains - time, size, weight and money. 5-8 year old kids measure length, weight, time and money in this science app using a tape, a scale, a clock and coins in 20 exercises.

Full version has 300+ exercises of increasing difficulty.” 2- Science Experiment For Kids 3- Science For Kids “Here you can learn interesting science facts by experiment with different materials that react in surprising ways. 4- SkySafari 6- 3D Brain. Galxyz, an adventure with science curriculum for students. World Library of Science. Two Great Resources for Science Teachers. March 10, 2015 Below are two interesting science websites we learned about from Graphite.

Two Great Resources for Science Teachers

Both teachers and students can use them to access a wide variety of science resources including: project ideas in different areas of science, interactives, games, activities, lessons and many more. 1- The Lawrence Hall of Science The Lawrence Hall of Science provides a rich library of interactives covering different scientific phenomena. Students can use them in hands-on activities to design, test, and discover amazing things about science. The resources in this website are arranged into different categories including: After School Kids Science (contains science activities specifically designed for kids in grades 3 and 5); Check out Science (You and your budding scientist read a nonfiction book from Seeds of Science/Roots of Reading curriculum, then follow the instructions on the included activity card), Explore the World (interactives to help you virtually discover the world) and many more.
