STEM iPad Apps (Fall 2014) | Singing Fingers HD


Singing Fingers lets you fingerpaint with sound. Just touch the screen while you make a sound, and colorful paint appears. Touch the paint to play back the sound again!

You can paint your own musical instrument and play it, play with your voice, experiment with sounds, or create whatever else you can imagine.

Singing Fingers comes with help screens to get you started, examples to inspire you, and the ability to save and load your creations.

New for the iPad version:

  • Improved Sound! Rewritten granular synthesis engine provides smoother, more lifelike output

  • Improved Colors! A new pitch tracking algorithm can tell what note you're singing. The same note in different octaves should give the same color. Sing a scale to get a rainbow.

Instantly sound like a rock star! Optimized for use with ION’s All-Star Guitar controller, the All-Star Guitar app is the ultimate way to rock out with your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Learn guitar chords, learn songs, or just rock out freestyle in your own special way!

Follow the lights on the neck to quickly learn how to play your favorite songs. Plus, 10 free learn-and-play songs are included when you purchase the All-Star Guitar controller and many more are available for purchase.

STEM iPad Apps (Fall 2014) | cascadr

Cascadr experiments with the idea of playing a sequence of notes and a number of speeds - simultaneously. Rather than the sequences being played in time with each other (for example, 30bpm, 60bpm, 120bpm...) they are played at intervals of 1bpm - which generates an interesting cascading effect.

There are eight notes in this sequence, and each note’s pitch can be chosen over a range of 2 octaves (on a chromatic scale) starting from A4 (or 440Hz). It’s also possible to alter the volume of each note, so emphasis can be placed on specific notes. Simply touch the column that represents the value you wish to change and drag up or down. When you change a note or note volume, the change will be heard straight away.

Perhaps most importantly, you can choose the speed of the sequences. As the idea of this application is to play sequences with this cascading effect, you can only choose the speed of the first sequence. So, if you choose a speed of 10bpm, the next sequence will be played at 11bpm, the next at 12bpm and so on.

Along with functions for starting and stopping the sequence, there is a ‘re-sync’ function that allows you to restart the sequence from the beginning, meaning that all of the sequences will be put back in sync again.

While there may be some ‘shock-horror’ at the lack of syncopation, Cascadr can produce some really ambient melodies and rhythms - along with some interesting chords as the sequences slide in and out of time. Just set your sequence, speed, play and listen.

I’ve got plans to add more features for customising the sequence further, and providing the ability to choose different sounds so stick around!

Have fun with it!

STEM iPad Apps (Fall 2014) | Hopscotch, Programming Designed for Everyone: coding for kids

2013 Parents' Choice Gold Award winner
2014 Children's Technology Review: Best Educational Technology
Featured by Apple in Education and Kids
Hopscotch is programming designed for everyone. Kids can use simple, intuitive building blocks to create games, animations and apps in this colorful, interactive environment.

Program your characters to move, draw, and collide with each other, and use shaking, tilting, or even shouting at the iPad to control them.

Praise from our users:

“I totes adore Hopscotch! I feel like it has helped me learn a lot. I want to be an engineer and computer techno person when I grow up.” —Genesis, age 11

"This is the best app I have ever put on my kids' iPads."
—Bill Genereux, Digital media technology teacher and dad

"BTW, Hopscotch is so much fun! I went to Hawaii and for the whole 8 hour flight I played on it. The whole time! Thanks for being so awesome!!!!! :D”—Amara, age 9

"Great job!!! I'm seventy two years old, old - time amateur Apple II programmer and I used to teach my kids how to program with Logo. Now, I do the same with my grandchildren, using Hopscotch."
—P. Chatzisarantis, Grandfather

"You guys are incredible. I've never seen such a simple and powerful learning tool.” —M. Meyers, science and programming teacher

Why learn to code? Computer Science is among the highest paid college degrees and programming jobs are growing at 2x the national average. By the year 2020, there will be a projected 1.4 million computer jobs but only 400,000 CS students. Even if kids don’t grow up to be programmers, the problem solving and critical thinking skills they will obtain playing Hopscotch are necessary for every career path. Hopscotch was inspired by MIT’s Scratch.

Recommended for kids ages 8 to ∞.

STEM iPad Apps (Fall 2014) | ScratchJr

With ScratchJr, young children (ages 5-7) learn important new skills as they program their own interactive stories and games.

By snapping together graphical programming blocks, children can make characters move, jump, dance, and sing. In the process, children learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the computer. They also use math and language in a meaningful and motivating context, supporting the development of early-childhood numeracy and literacy. With ScratchJr, children don’t just learn to code, they code to learn.

ScratchJr was inspired by the popular Scratch programming language (, used by millions of people (ages 8 and up) around the world. The ScratchJr interface and programming language were redesigned to make them appropriate for younger children’s cognitive, personal, social, and emotional development.

ScratchJr is a collaboration between the Lifelong Kindergarten research group at the MIT Media Lab, the Developmental Technologies research group at Tufts University, and the Playful Invention Company. The ScratchJr project has received generous financial support from the National Science Foundation (NSF DRL-1118664), Code-to-Learn Foundation, LEGO Foundation, and British Telecommunications.

If you enjoy using this free app, please consider making a donation to the Code-to-Learn Foundation (, a nonprofit organization that provides ongoing support for ScratchJr. We appreciate donations of all sizes, large and small.

STEM iPad Apps (Fall 2014) | Stop Motion Cafe


This one’s also simple to use. You select your frames-per-second rate, press “capture frames” and hit the screen to add a new frame. When you’re done, press “elaborate movie” and it will save to your Camera Roll. I like this app the best out of the three because it gives you the ability to save a project to work on later and it also has an edit function so you can remove frames you’re not so thrilled about. I think that’s awesome because if you’re anything like me, things don’t always come out perfectly the first time and you need a do-over button. I can’t believe I just admitted that...

Using the app is simple, you just select your frames-per-second rate, hit "capture frames" and then tap the screen to add.

Perfect for the classroom
"My students loved this app. They felt it was so easy to use, that they could open it for the first time and know intuitively what to do. Having it then go to iBooks and create an individual bookshelf was fantastic."

– Dallion, Children's illustrator

"The app is super intuitive! I was working on a book for my 7 year old niece (who lives in Brazil) in no time. It took me about 30 minutes to put together a book for her, publish in iBooks and email the ePub file to my brother…to open it up on his iPad…. for my niece to read it."
