Zachy the Robot: Top Educational Apps To Uncover Earth's Hidden Wonders
Zachy the Robot: Quest for the Museum Treasures, by GenevaMars, is designed for the iPad and iPad Mini. An animated short introduction features the mayor of Robocity. As he brags about the opening of his new museum, it becomes clear he has forgotten one important element- the exhibits! He sends Zachy and Ada, two Robocity repairbots , to find and collect the finest examples of minerals, fossils, and dinosaur bones . With the help of the museum curators, they travel to the far corners of the world to unearth treasures that will be displayed in the museum. Your child becomes a junior explorer with them, and gets to chisel and sort the artifacts that are excavated. Along the way there are games and mazes, with more than enough factual information to satisfy a youngster’s curiosity.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
The scientific information presented in Zachy the Robot: Quest for the Museum Treasures was supplied by the prestigious Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, PA. I appreciate developers who respect their subject matter enough to seek out experts in the field to help them tell their stories. This app provides the right balance of science and fun, and there is enough information to keep kids engaged for many hours. As a matter of fact, there are over 50 different artifacts that can be “discovered.” Another nice feature allows kids to save a game at any point, letting them continue their adventure where they left off.
Zachy the Robot: Quest for the Museum Treasures gives kids a chance to go “behind the scenes” at the museum of natural history. The dig sites are real places and the information is factually sound. Fun Educational Apps is always on the lookout for apps that combine solid educational content with fun, age-appropriate activities, and we think Zachy the Robot: Quest for the Museum Treasures is one of the best apps in this category to be released within the last six months.
