Some Very Good iPad Apps for Science Teachers

May 11, 2016
Below is a short collection of some very good iPad apps we have specifically curated for Science teachers and students. They can be used to consolidate and expand on what students learn about the natural world. The apps will also help students learn about endangered species, discover thousands of organisms from around the globe, explore biodiversity of wild life and many more.

1- Project Noah

‘Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere…The Project Noah Missions section includes dozens of challenging and meaningful investigations that touch on nearly every key concept in the life sciences, from adaptation and natural selection to conservation and biodiversity.’

2- Libraries of Life

‘Libraries of Life is a collaborative project of iDigBio, the US National Science Foundation's National Resource for Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections, and a growing number of Thematic Collections Networks focused on creating digital, web-deployed information about the nation's billion biodiversity specimens to benefit science and society.’

3- iNturalist

‘iNaturalist is a place where you can record what you see in nature, meet other nature lovers, and learn about the natural world.’

4- WWF Together

‘WWF Together brings you closer to amazing and endangered species than you ever could have imagined, letting you discover their lives and the work WWF does for them. Try out “tiger vision,” flap your wings like a migrating butterfly, and chop the panda’s bamboo. As part of each story, you’ll get to bring an animal into your world by taking a selfie with its origami or placing it in a scene.’

5- DIY Sun Science

‘DIY Sun Science, funded by NASA, allows families and educators to investigate and learn about the Sun at home, at school, or anywhere you go! Developed by UC Berkeley’s The Lawrence Hall of Science…Includes over a dozen, easy to use, hands-on activities to learn about the Sun. Each activity includes step-by-step instructions that have been tested by educators, kids, and families. The activity materials are widely available and inexpensive—you probably have many of them in your home.’
