Review: How It Works: Machines by Geek Kids
An excellent educational App showing you HOW 9 common machines work...build it then see it working!
View on the App Store: How It Works: Machines by Geek Kids - Next is Great
Features of How It Works: Machines by Geek Kids:
Choose from a selection of 9 well known machines: Car, Lawnmower, Locomotive, Washing machine, Hair Dryer, Rocket, Windmill, Pump & Vacuum Cleaner.
Once you have selected your machine, the blueprint outline of the featured machine is shown, as if you were viewing the inside of it! (This is great just to be able to take a sneaky peak somewhere we usually can't!) Sitting to the side of the drawing is the range of parts required to go inside that machine.
Your job is to put those parts into the machine, where you think they should go (like a puzzle). In case you do not select correctly or you cannot guess where they should be placed, they automatically slot into place. This is great because there is no frustration, and younger ones can play too.
Once all the parts are in place you have various options, depending on the machine you choose. In ALL cases you can turn the machine ON and see how those parts move together to get it working - it is really fascinating and teaches a very valuable lesson to anyone with an inquiring mind.
More machines please developers - we LOVE this APP!!
