[prMac.com] Longmont, Colorado - Monkey in the Middle Apps announces the launch of their new educational game, Middle School Science 8th Grade, which is available now from the App Store. While flying a monkey through space and avoiding asteroids, students answer questions on middle school science topics. Joining the existing Middle School Math 7th Grade and Middle School Vocab 7th Grade apps, Middle School Science 8th Grade help fills the "app gap" for middle school (junior high) students.
Fun for Students:
"Middle school science is when students start to learn how the world works - from atoms and cells, to planets and galaxies, and everything in between." explained Andrew Meier, co-founder and CTO. "It's fascinating and I want students to be successful and continue taking science in high school and college."
Designed for Teachers:
While it's fun for students, this app has been designed for teachers. Teachers can track progress for an entire classroom using either score emails or web based reports. The topics have been carefully chosen to match common textbooks and core standards. Each quiz also includes review notes and links to online tutorials and videos.
Prepare for 8th Grade Science testing:
In the spring of 8th grade, all students in the United States take a standardized science test. Because this test covers topics learned over the three years of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, it is especially helpful to review. The free app includes four quizzes: Matter, Geology, Astronomy, and Weather. The Pro version adds quizzes on Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Experimental Method, Periodic Table, and Energy.
Pricing and Availability:
Middle School Science 8th Grade works on all versions of iPad(R), iPhone(R), and iPod touch(R). It is free and is available now from the App Store. Middle School Science Pro 8th Grade is also available now from the App Store for 99 cents. A 50% educational discount is available through the Apple Volume Purchasing Program for Education.
