“This is a great way to let children informally and playfully discover some of the big ideas they’ll encounter later on in their school curriculum. Apps like this one are good reminders for why you spent hundreds of dollars on a phone or tablet for your child.” — Warren Buckleitner, editor, Children’s Technology Review
Dig into our planet and the geological forces that shape it. Trigger earthquakes! Make volcanos erupt! Investigate plate tectonics, weathering, erosion, and deposition. Travel across time to see how our home has changed over eons, pre-Pangea to the present
The Earth is an interactive model that lets kids study and observe the geological forces that change the planet — above and below the surface, in a matter of minutes and over millions of years.
