I just found this great new app for kids. Xperica’s app is a virtual science lab that allows kids to conduct virtual experiments. Four experiments come with the free app and then there are in-app purchases for additional experiments.
I downloaded this today and my two sons couldn’t put it down. Its educational because it explains the scientific principles behind what they are doing, but it is also fun and interactive. My favorite part is that it doesn’t make a mess in my kitchen!!
This app has great potential for school age students who need hands on opportunities to understand the principles discussed in class, but are stuck at home or in a doctors office.
