Elements 4D

This app lets students bring elements from the periodic table to life using virtual reality. Students can play matching games with the elements blocks and scan the code to show what the elements are on the iPad. Students can also combine codes using the iPad to show what happens when the elements are combined.


Kahoot! is a fun way to get your kids excited for tests, quizzes, and surveys. Multiple choice questions are projected on the screen and students just their iPads to select the correct answer. This can be done individually or as a team.
