I feel like I won the lottery with another great app for older kids! This one comes straight from The Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley, California. The app is a compilation of videos, activities and information about nanotechnology, perfect for getting kids to think about science this summer, even if they aren't in school.
The best part are the activities, tying in real-life activities with the iPhone and iPad. Gather the necessary materials and experience nanotechnology in the home! Follow up with learning more through the information section. And it's really all FREE!
To geek out on nanotechnology, please support Smart Apps For Kids and use our download link (*not nano-sized):
NOTE: the iPad version is new, and has just three activities at this time. The iPhone version works very well at x2 (maintaining good quality) and has more experiments. Both are FREE.
The DIY Nano app allows families to experience and learn about nanoscale science, engineering, and technology at home or on the go!
The app provides free, easy to use, hands-on activities at your fingertips. Each activity includes material lists, step-by-step instructions, and detailed explanations. The activity materials are widely available and inexpensive, and you probably have many of them in your own home!
Our app includes links to family friendly videos and helps you browse the whatisnano.org website for more information, activities, and videos.
More DIY Nano activities and videos coming soon!
