Science has always been one of my favorite subjects. Well, except maybe for that one year of earth science in 6th grade when my mom had to bail me out of a hopeless situation. Trust me, she has never let me forget it. But outside of that, I’ve always been fascinated with the way God created living things. That’s probably why you’ll find such a large collection of science apps on our iPad.
Today I bring you my list of the best science apps for kids. I have ordered them by age, with toddlers at the top. One disclaimer that I will give about science. I have not double checked these apps to see what they teach specifically about how old the earth is. If the age of the earth is something that you are sensitive to, be sure that you double check that. I don’t always filter this information, as I sometimes enjoy the chance to pull out the Bible and show my kids what is wrong with the information that they just heard.

Encylopedia Britannica has an entire series of apps that boast beautiful photography, as well as solid science teaching. Students will learn just about everything there is to know about a volcano, locate them, and even watch them erupt.

Gotta love this FREE app that introduces the concept of physics to even the youngest scientists.
This app has made award winning lists over and over again, as it teaches the laws of physics screen by screen.
With this app, you can find out anything you desire about the moon today or any day in the past. Best of all, the app is FREE.
Leah has really enjoyed this app targeted for K-3rd graders. Short movie topics include science, health, social studies, and even technology. Students can answer questions and take quizzes on the information, too. The app itself if FREE and if you have a membership to their website, the content is unlimited.
“A fun periodic table where every element has it’s own unique personality,” is this apps’ tag line. The graphics are lovely and the price is right: FREE!
Another FREE app complete with everything you would ever hope to know about the brain. The pictures are fairly simple making it a great teaching tool for elementary students.
