We have all had to learn about the world of molecules in school. Learning more about molecules or teaching your kids about them does not have to be a challenge. These 6 iOS apps teach you about molecules in an interactive fashion:
Molecules by Theodore Gray: includes a touch-interactive molecular dynamics simulation, allowing you to interact with different molecules. You can increase or decrease the temperature and see how molecules react.
Matter by KIDS DISCOVER: teaches you about various forms of matter, differences between chemical and physical changes, and how matter works. It has 3D models, high-definition video/audio, and puzzles.
NOVA Elements: teaches you what gives each element its unique properties, how elements combine, and more.
The Elements: brings an interactive periodic table of elements to your iPad. It has 500+ high resolution, rotatable objects. It provides you with info from Wolfram|Alpha.
Atoms by KIDS DISCOVER: covers protons, electrons, and neutrons. You will learn about the elements, the periodic table, and pros/cons of nuclear energy. You get HD video and audio, high resolution photographs, and more.
Chemio: an interactive periodic table, molar mass calculator, and solubility table. It serves as an interactive chemical reference for chemistry students.
