Features of Interactive Minds: Solar System:
This is one of the best Apps we have found of its kind. Perfectly designed for children of around 5+ and adults will find it informative too!
There are 17 main subjects including The Planets, Dwarf Planets, The Sun, The Moon, Gravity, Magnetic Fields, Space Exploration, The Milky Way, Planet Revolutions, Rotation and Size Comparisons and Cosmic Relations.
Starting with an overview of Cosmic Relations this app focuses on the Sun, Moon, the Planets and Dwarf Planets. Each one can be selected individually and there is detailed simply explained information supported by great photographs and in some cases movies.
Find out how planetary rings and moons are formed, learn about gravitational and magnetic forces and uncover information on asteroids, meteors and comets.
Learn at your own pace and become as involved as you want to be with your child's study.
There are a few extra brilliant features within this high quality educational app and they are:
Planetary Rotation: Show easily why it's hot at the equator and why there's day and night using the Planetary Rotation.
Planetary Size Comparison: Compare the sizes of planets to each other and to the sun and moon in this fascinating and simple to use activity.
Planet Revolutions: Easily see why it takes Neptune 164 Earth Years to orbit the sun and compare the rotation times of all the orbiting planets.
Solar System Scale: Demonstrate to your child just how far there between planets using the Scale.
These aspects alone make this app worth buying.
I'd say this is a must have for any iPad Educational library, it's one of the easiest ways to share our planet and it's surroundings with our children!
10 out of 10!
