[prMac.com] Yoshkar-Ola, Russian Federation - Virtual Space 000 is pleased to introduce their new educational app, STEM Islands. City of Light. Optics for Mac. Instead of studying the phenomena of nature in a classroom, a Physics Teacher and two students - a bright girl and a curious boy - set out on an amazing journey to various wondrous STEM Islands.
On island City of Light, we will see why the plashes of sunlight appear on the walls. We will explore the components of the light beam and discover why the rainbow appears in the sky. We will learn why people can distinguish colors and how the objects cast shadows. At the end, we will play a game.
