How it Works:
The app opens on a featured experiment but there are many others to choose from including:
Alien Monster Eggs
Film Canister Rockets
Tie Dye Milk
The experiments can be selected based on what is in your pantry, age group, science type, and amount of time to complete it.
Each experiment has step-by-step instructions that includes the ingredients, recipes, what is learned and a few photos.
Best of all, there are videos where Liz Heninecke, a.k.a. the Kitchen Pantry Scientist, demonstrates with kids how to do the experiment, the science behind it, and the results.
The app will also be updated with new experiments.
Our video of this app in use provides a sample of how this app works.
What it Teaches/Develops:
The app encourages kids to learn concepts in the areas of biology, chemistry and physics.
This app is a good way to interest kids in science as they do these cool experiments to create green slime, marshmallow catapults, or magic potions.
"Overall this is a well designed app. Preschool and early grades teachers should find it useful, as well as parents interested in doing some science with their children at home. "
"This app isn't the slickest looking of all, but it does provide recipes and instructions for fun at-home experiments like Tie Dye Milk, Magic Potion and Green Slime."
