Elements 4D by DAQRI

Part educational story and part game, the Elements 4D app offers a new, fun way to experience augmented reality and learn about real-life chemistry.

Paired with either paper or wood blocks that are inscribed with the symbols of 36 elements from the periodic table, this app will instantly transform a simple, inanimate object into dynamic, dimensional, 4D representations of each element.

Designed by DAQRI, the Elements 4D app enables you to:

• Interact with 36 amazing, naturally-occurring elements and learn their names, what they look like, and their atomic weights
• Learn unique, fun facts about each element
• Combine two elements together and see how they react, including the catalyst, resulting compound and chemical equation
• Get inspired about chemistry!

About Elements 4D

Elements 4D was successfully funded on Kickstarter in July 2013. The DAQRI-designed interactive wooden blocks are now available for purchase at http://elements4d.daqri.com.

You can also use the app with papercraft blocks that you can print out for free and make at home. Just download the following images and follow the folding instructions to create your own papercraft blocks at http://elements4d.daqri.com/documents/elements-blocks-all.pdf.

To get started, aim the app viewfinder at either a paper or wood Elements 4D interactive block and watch it come to life. Next, introduce a second block into view, put them together, and see how they react!

Universal Zoom: All About Sizes and Distances

Discovering the scale of the Universe has never been more beautiful, exciting and easy to use.
Universal Zoom offers you a wonderful journey through the Universe presenting objects to scale from an electron to the observable Universe and everything in between. Have fun comparing any two objects. It’s breathtaking for all ages and experience levels!

“With this educational app the whole family can go to a scientific expedition.”
BesteKinderApps.de

"Best app for science"
SmartAppsForSpecialNeeds.com

"This app is a must-have for teachers and parents of all ages. Get them interested in science, help them understand relative size and simply have fun exploring how everything compares."
SmartAppsForKids.com

"This fascinating tool, which can help kids visualize the scale and vastness of the universe, has plenty of potential for classroom use."
graphite.org

Have fun discovering:
• subatomic particles
• atoms
• detailed chromosome and DNA structure
• human cells
• insects, animals and birds
• the largest trees
• famous and tallest buildings
• mountains

• detailed Solar system structure and it's location in the Milky Way
• stars: from the smallest neutron star to the biggest currently known
• Milky Way neighboring galaxies, superclusters and the observable Universe
• visually presented metric and imperial/US units of length.

Compare any two objects to know how many times one object fits into another. Do you know how many giraffes fit into Eiffel tower? (the answer is 59). Compare buildings with animals, stars with planets and their orbits. Go wild. Now, you are not limited measuring things with feet or meters only.

Simplicity is a virtue
Universal Zoom is a unique educational app designed with user in mind to let you explore and experience the notions of SIZE and SCALE by presenting complicated scientific things in the simple, intuitive way.

We carefully designed every object, fitting it precisely into the scene, preparing the high-resolution graphics and concise information about it accompanied with a lot of interesting facts.

Students and Teachers love Bone Genius!

“Bone Genius is great preparation for the test! As I prepare for a career in health care, I need to know the location and name of bones in the shoulder, spine, thorax, sacrum, knee – everything! This app helps me commit everything to memory, and it doesn’t feel like studying.” –Piper S., community college pre-nursing student

“As an instructor, I have been impressed with how Bone Genius aids my students in an engaging way. They learn bone morphology and terminology in a way that is far superior to an anatomy textbook or atlas.” –John P., university professor, human anatomy and physiology

“Fitness instructors, yoga teachers, physical therapy or even massage professionals – this is an essential tool for all of us. The visual impact is incredible, and learning in this form, through a game, is so much more fun that studying a reference book.“-Meredith S., pilates teacher

Kid Weather

Featured as "New and Noteworthy" after our first 2 weeks.
Featured as "What's Hot" our second and third month.

A true weather app for kids designed by a 6 year old boy (and his meteorologist dad). Power packed with real time weather conditions, forecasts, science and fun facts about the weather, plus it is interactive making it fun for the kids. This includes math and science with S.T.E.M in mind to make parents and teachers happy as well.

FEATURES
-An eye-catching display of the weather with a kid or animal avatar that is dressed for conditions and short term forecasts. Use your hometown or pick a new location to track.
-Change your avatar and make the animals either a boy or a girl.
*Wear? This interactive feature lets you change the weather on your own when it might be boring outside. Raise or lower the temperature, make it sunny, rainy, snowy, or anything in between. See how your avatar will dress in those conditions.

-Educational: Trivia, fun facts, safety tips, and extreme weather records. Learn something new every day of the year. Topics include: Animal Weather, Clouds, Expressions, Extreme Weather, Instruments, Lightning, Nursery Rhymes and Song Lyrics, Rainbows, Sky Color, Seasons, Top US Cities for snow, US State Records, Weather Folklore, Weather Map symbols.
-Math: Includes a Fahrenheit to Celsius calculator
-Graphing: Plot basic weather conditions and keep track by week and month. A great way to introduce kids to a key element of S.T.E.M graphing

Imagine parents and kids spending 5-10 minutes each evening discussing the weather of the day, plot it on the graph, learn something new, and then figure out how to dress for school the next day. Then double-check the weather again in the morning. Our hope is that Kid Weather will be used by kids and with their parents as a useful tool.

**Our goal is to add more kid and animal avatars and features. Your support will help that happen very soon. We look forward to your feedback.

Go on an adventure to find your very own owl pellets to prepare, dissect, and reassemble. Make sure to keep an eye out for the other forest creatures you might encounter that are part of the owl’s habitat.

The Froguts Owl Pellet adventure is both an educational and whimsical journey to discover what owl pellets are, where they come from, and how to dissect them. The primary learning objectives are to - Teach How:
• habitats are comprised of many creatures.
• owl pellet formation occurs within owls.
• predators and prey interact with each other.
• skeletons are made of many bones, and that they have similar names across animals.
• skeletons are put together.
• food webs move energy up to the predators.
• herbivores, insectivores, carnivores, and omnivores feed.
• owl pellets are handled, prepared, and dissected.
