Science apps are the most abundant in iTunes. There are several solar systems, and periodic table. If you search science in iTunes, you will find pages. The only thing science apps are missing is a projection app.

Here is a couple of videos of science apps being used. These videos illustrate how simple it is to take an activity that takes time to setup and space to store the items. Now a student can open an app and they are ready to go. The one to the left is a video of the 3D4 Medical Anatomy app in action. The video to the right is Frog Dissection.

Periodic Table Plus
Learning has never been more fun. Organizing the elements in chemistry has never been easier than through the Mendeleev's periodic table. Here is a tribute to this great scientist. This application is a colorful visualization of the periodic table that will leave indelible impressions of factual chemistry in the young minds. For the inquisitive, the application provides a full page detail of many of the properties of the elements. The 'Pick & Place' game, with multiple skill levels, will dramatically change the way we learn about the elements in chemistry. Put yourself in the Mendeleev's shoes; drag the elements one by one to where you think they should go in order to make the complete periodic table.

iElements - Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements
The periodic table of the chemical elements is a tabular display of the chemical elements. Although precursors to this table exist, its invention is generally credited to Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869, who intended the table to illustrate recurring ("periodic") trends in the properties of the elements. The layout of the table has been refined and extended over time, as new elements have been discovered, and new theoretical models have been developed to explain chemical behavior.

Periodic Lite
Periodic Lite is an Ad-inclusive version of Periodic, a complete reference to the Periodic Table of Elements. It includes useful information such as an element's atomic weight, electron configuration, melting point, boiling point, atomic radius, ionic radius, and discovery year.

We are introducing a series of sensors in schools all over the country that are using iPads (or iPod touch) for instruction. The first in a series of products is the iCelsius, a product that extends your iPad by using a temperature probe that turns an iPad or iPod touch into a digital thermometer. Check it out here:

The current free app downloaded from the App store will read the temperature, create graphs and set up alerts. Schools are buying the stainless tip probe with a 1 meter cable (it can also be immersed in liquids) for classroom instructions, especially STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) instruction.

Frog Dissection
Frog Dissection, winner of PeTA’s Mark Twain Ethical Science award, is a very user-friendly iPad app that helps you learn more about frog dissection, virtually. Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) were involved in taking this app from conceptualization to its final execution. Their inputs played an important role in designing the app to be scientifically accurate and user-friendly. Frog Dissection allows you to dissect a chloroformed specimen complete with dissection instruments-pins, scalpel, marker, and forceps. Step-by-step instructions and 3D views give it a very realistic feel. The best aspect of the app is the 3D imaging of the frog’s anatomy that help the user visualize the internal organs very effectively. The clear dissection sequence gives students a feel for the real thing. The app is a great educational tool for those who might have formalin allergies, feel uneasy about live dissections and/or don’t like the smell and mess of a wet lab.

So you're asking, what is BIOLOGY? Well... Here's our best definition. Biology is the study of LIFE and the changes that take place with and around all living things. And don't just think we mean Earth. The study of biology covers every planet and object in the Universe.

In the same way everything on Earth is made up of atoms, everything that is alive on Earth is made up of cells. An entire living thing can be one cell or it can be billions. Most cells on Earth have similar pieces and parts. Let's get started and look inside cell structure. Go take a look!

A LifeCycle App
A life cycle is a period involving different stages of a species from birth through reproduction. As kids grow, they need to know and understand how life starts, morphs through various stages into a adult and how life starts all over again. Various processes also exist in nature, that are also called life cycles since they follow a systematic flow through stages at regular intervals.

This Life Cycles App is created by a team of high school students, educators, and parents in Texas. It is easy to use, intuitive and most importantly, provides educational content with great illustrations and narrations for students, schools and montessori's.
