Piiig Labs- Introducing Children to the Wonders of Science using Virtual Experiments - is available for the iPad and was developed by Piiig Inc. This app is recommended for children ages 3-7, although I think 3 year olds may not have the attention span or problem solving skills necessary to understand the experiments; I would put the age range closer to 6-10.
Have a look:
As mentioned before, there are six different activities contained in Piiig Labs. The first one is Circuitry. For this project, the child reconstructs a circuit by replacing the parts- wires, battery, bulb, and switch. Once all the parts are repositioned into the proper places, your child can close the circuit and light the bulb. The second demonstration is a Volcano. This is the popular chemical reaction that results from mixing baking soda and vinegar. After your child pours both ingredients into the top of the volcano, like magic, the lava starts flowing out. I won’t spoil the rest of the surprises in the app, but you can be sure that there is something interesting and appealing for junior scientists in each one.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
The best way to get children “hooked on science” is to let them see how fascinating it can be. The user interface is so intuitive that no instructions are needed. In Piiig Labs, children see what a circuit is and how it works. They also can discover how mixing chemicals can have unexpected results, such as making lava. This is science 101 without the mess or the danger. I applaud this developer for creating Piiig Labs, and I hope to see more Piiig Labs apps in the future. It is our latest Top Pick in the category of science apps for children.
