Take a journey on your tablet or smartphone to learn science with the Sassafras Science Apps!Take a journey on our tablet or smartphone to learn science!

Hey folks! We are so excited to share a new way for you all to join in on the fun of our science-learning journey – the Sassafras Science Apps!

We all know that the Prez is a technological genius. But, we bet you didn’t know that Brock Hoverbreck, from our botany leg, is quite the science app writer, too!

He was more than willing to help us create a few apps that would allow you all to join in the journey from your tablet or smartphone. That is, as long as they helped students learn about science. Brock was quite emphatic about that.

So, here’s what we have in the works:

Sassafras Science Coloring App

The Sassafras Science Coloring App allows your students to create their own technicolor versions of the things we have studied on our journey. They can choose one of the over 80 colors and then just point and place where they want it to be in their design.

It’s perfect to keep little hands busy while you read-aloud the novel, while you wait for their siblings to finish gymnastics class, or while you are making dinner. Plus when they are done, you can print and share their creations with grandma.

The Sassafras Science Zoology Coloring App

Oh, and did we mention – this app is completely FREE!

“Great addition to series It’s simple and easy to use and makes a fun addition to the curriculum. My kids love coloring the pictures of the animals they learned about.” (5-star review in the Play Store)

All throughout our journey, we had to enter data into the SCIDAT app so that we could proceed to our next location. Sometimes that was easy and everything went as planned, sometimes . . . not so much. We wanted to give you all a taste of the science we learned along the way in a much less dangerous, Man-with-No-Eyebrows-less kind of way.

Brock helped us create a beautiful app where you can travel from location to location learning about science with a swipe of your finger! This app is great to use as a review for your students or as a preview of what they will be learning.

Oh, and did we mention – this app is also completely FREE!

“Fun! Very simple app for kids showing habitats and a few animals that live in each one. We homeschool and are using the Zoology book right now. This is such a fun way to add to it! Still would be great for kids as a stand alone too :).” (5-star review in the Play Store)

We are also working with Uncle Cecil and the Prez to get the LINLOC app, complete with invisible zip lines, available to you all.

Unfortunately, testing had not gone so well . . . something about disappearing kids and parents not being pleased. As much as we want to share this incredible aspect of our journey, it’s looking like this may never become a full-scale reality.
