Edu-apps are at its peak, and we're more than glad to review them, mainly because they're more creative every time. This is the case of Science Engine, which without being a game at all, it's a collection of interactive slides. The kid has to solve every experiment, and they will previously receive enough info to do so; but also a little explanation of how that worked right after. Link to sites on the Internet are also available about related topics, most likely electromagnetism.
It's a great idea, as kids recreate the experiments by on-screen gestures. However, user interface and graphics overall must be improved, because they have an unkempt appearance and are unappealing (as if they were drawn in Paint), and text size are too little to be comfortably read. Anyway, every time a challenge is solved, the kid gets an award, either in coins or pearls of wisdom.
If you can pass by the graphics and interface and stick to the context, it's a great app your smart offspring will love, and we would like to encourage its developer to create new challenges on other topics, not only related to physics, but also to chemistry and life sciences.

Try Physics Studio Today!!!
WAKE UP THE EINSTEIN WITHIN YOU.
Learn the Smart Way - by doing experiments on your tablet/ phone.
You can learn physics the old way through books and boring lectures or learn SMART - in your own way, at your own pace, in your own time. Like a musical instrument, Physics is best learnt by doing, trying and making mistakes.
For the price of a cup of Starbucks coffee and the time it takes to drink it, this app can make you a Physics GURU.
No more boring videos and books which TEACH.
This app encourages you to LEARN.
Physics Studio heralds a revolution in learning. It is a fun app to learn school science through games on a touchscreen device. Thousands of concepts in Physics - magnets, inertia, atoms, states of matter, electricity and waves come alive as you play games and experiment virtually on your touch device. The white-box experiments go way beyond laboratory experiments. You can see the molecules, the electric current and the fields and form a clear picture in your head of how these things work.
How does a microphone work? What is a Cathode Ray Tube? How does spray painting work? How do you control a nuclear reactor? Can you measure the purity of gold? Through interactive games based on science, Physics Studio makes it possible to learn all this by doing.
Never before has physics been so much fun.
