Educational Science App Teaches the Building Blocks of Life
May 5, 2011 in Education
[prMac.com] El Dorado Hills, California - Gravitas Publications created by Dr. Rebecca Keller has partnered with iHomeEducator, Inc. to create a science app for teaching chemistry from a primary school level. This app focuses on the student text book and illustrations to help engage the student. The Teacher's Manual, Lab Workbook, and other science topics can be purchased at the Gravitas Publications website.
"I decided to write a whole science series which would give kids a foundation prior to high school. Chemistry, Physics, and Biology are building blocks that are needed at the elementary level to understand high school and college level sciences. I encourage parents to start Pre-Level 1 Chemistry at 1st grade.", Dr. Rebecca Keller.
"Our children have used this to learn about the molecular structure of water which is pretty impressive for a 1st grader.", Andy Lee, iHomeEducator, Inc.
The student text has been incorporated into a visually interactive app allowing the student to swipe, tap, and drill down across building blocks which are incorporated into an end-to-end flowchart which starts with a chapter on atoms and ends with a chapter introducing DNA.
Pre-Level I is geared towards grades K-3. The Pre-Level I app introduces students to solid science concepts at this early stage of formal learning. The app encourages discovery and inquiry.
