Best Science Apps for Kids

Your child will have a great time learning more about the world with these exciting science apps.

According to koodakpress، When it comes to teaching kids about science, there’s a whole lot to consider. Astronomy and weather, oceans and biology: The term science covers a lot of ground. Luckily, you don’t have to be proficient in every subject to give your child the background she needs to do well — there’s an app for that. Whether it’s teaching your child about photosynthesis, dinosaurs, or the moon, these 10 science apps are beautifully made to inspire learning and are super fun to play.

Sea Life

Take your little one on a virtual underwater ride by introducing him to 12 marine animals, including seals, seahorses, crabs, whales, dolphins, and turtles. Both images and sounds are important for learning with this app, which has photos that kids can touch to hear a recording of the animal. The app allows you to upload photos from your own phone to continue the learning.

Solar Walk

Even though Buzz Lightyear isn’t a part of this award-winning app, your kid won’t miss him! Explore the solar system, read details about planets, learn about space missions (and view satellite models), travel through space and time, watch movies about Earth, and get a bird’s-eye view of the entire galaxy. This realistic-looking app also offers 3-D images that require 3-D glasses (not included). To infinity, and beyond!

Sid the Science Kid — Sid’s Slide to the Side

Based on the award-winning PBS KIDS show of the same name, Sid the Science Kid will teach your child about friction and sliding in two stories with two games. Your child will start by learning about friction and how and why it can stop her from sliding. Then she’ll move on to investigate and try experiments with friction through interactive games that end with how friction can apply to real-life situations (as when Sid’s Grandma uses wax on her skies to help her ski faster).


Tackle a handful of environmental topics such as the four seasons, the parts of a plant, the water cycle, and more. This app features six activities related to basic science concepts (how we use our five senses, how things sink or float). Kids focus on one topic at a time, and are rewarded when a new and exciting topic is unlocked.

Leo’s Pad: Preschool Kids Learning Series

Developed as a series of “appisodes” and praised by Common Sense Media, Leo’s Pad was designed by Stanford University education researchers to include exciting, informative games sprinkled throughout a fun storyline featuring history’s famous scientists. Follow a group of 8-year-old friends — Leo (Leonardo da Vinci), Gally (Galileo), and Marie (Curie) — who are learning all about science through their crazy adventures. In the first two apps, your child will help the friends construct a telescope and build a rocket; in the third, he’ll learn all about gravity.
