Bill Nye The Science Guy® 20th Anniversary App—of Science! Science rules, especially when you grab a seat at The Science Guy's desk and help yourself to heaping handfuls of science. Just scan your thumb to gain entrance to Nye Labs, the most amazing, scientifically fascinating place on Earth (and possibly beyond!).




PhyDios is an interactive, immersive way of learning physics. Design, Play, Learn, Share, Challenge, Comment, and do more. Unleash your creativity.
It is a great simulation tool to experience physics –using your own hands. Use simple drawing tools to build elaborate worlds, your own game, projects and even a quiz using rigid bodies, fluids, pivots, springs, ropes, rods, layers, motors, magnet, killer, immortal.
With PhyDios we motivate students to learn physics while having fun at it. Only your imagination can hold you back


SimPhysics, a collection of 50 games with over 350 levels to help you deeply engage with the physics behind rollercoasters, cannons, cars, cameras, lenses, mirrors, charges, magnets, electricity, free body diagrams, waves, tires, helicopter blades, swings, gravitation, friction, towing and more!

Exploriments: Weight, Mass and Force of Gravity - Effect of Altitude and Comparison across Multiple Planets

This highly interactive Exploriment App lets you explore the effect of gravity on weight and mass on different planets. You can also explore the effect of altitude on weight and mass and even of depth below the Earth’s surface. Use variety of instruments and free fall of a body to understand the effect of gravity in different scenarios. This app provides ample opportunities to try out various scenarios and compare the results across planets and varying altitudes, including scenarios of micro-gravity and near-weightlessness.


LabTimer is a count-up and alarming count-down multi-timer.

Little Predators Evolution

Catch your prey! Immerse yourself in the competitive mindset of an animal. Strategize your predators in order to catch the zebra, antelope and boar.

Food Chains for Kids

Top the leader board in this "gut-sy" game, get bonus credits and points for your free account and gain access to hundreds of educational science games and media including the complete Build-a-Body series.

Bionic Eye App

This app simulates the sort of vision that a person might experience using a bionic eye. The bionic eye is a retinal implant, placed at the back of the eye to restore a sense of vision for people with profound vision loss due to degenerative conditions of the retina. An external camera captures the visual scene and sends data to the implant. Electrodes on the implant electrically stimulate the nerve cells in the retina, providing a sense of vision. In this app, each spot of light that appears represents one electrode.

Building Serial Circuits (Lite)

Using 3D graphics and 2D electronic symbols, you will assemble different types of series circuits using wires, switches, batteries, and light bulbs. In order to better understand the difference between a series and a parallel circuit, build a circuit that illuminates two bulbs and observe what happens when one light bulb is removed.

States of Matter

Discover the fundamental nature of matter and understand different kinds of matter.
Based on classical learning, it explains three states of matter and tells you about the property of the state.
You can read, listen and assess your learning on states of matter. Simulation tells you about the motion of atoms within the particular state.
By using this App, A children can easily figure out solid, liquid and gas. Atom’s density clearly shows the difference of these 3 states.




The Nearpod platform enables teachers to use their iPads to manage content on students' iPads, iPhones or iPods. It combines presentation, collaboration, and real-time assessment tools into one integrated solution.

i-nigma QR Code, Data Matrix and 1D barcode reader
