Review: Monster Physics™
Monster Physics engages children in building machines and contraptions that work!
View on the App Store: Monster Physics™ - Dan Russell-Pinson
Features of Monster Physics™:
Lessons about physics concepts, such as: gravity, speed and velocity, friction, acceleration, mass, density and force. These lessons are practically illustrated with moving pieces, teaching the concepts in words as well as pictures.
Dozens of missions which increase in difficulty make this App both educational and entertaining. The purpose of Missions is to control the movements of machines and achieve the goals. For instance; picking up food with a crane, racing along a track (by controlling the acceleration), getting your monster to fly in a controlled manner, and more. Each task is challenging and relies on your knowledge of physics to guide you through.
Use materials such as metal, wood, plastic, ice and rubber.
Connect parts together using loose joints, arm joints, motor joints, ropes and chains. Give your invention a boost with a rocket, stabilizer, propeller, wings or hover-bot. Even add a cannon! Add magnets, electromagnets, rockets and claws!
Both of my boys enjoy Monster Physics, and they've learned the essential properties of physics principles in a FUN and engaging way.
