WonderBox is new app designed for school-age kids to let them learn in a completely safe environment. Developed by Duck Duck Moose, one of our hands-down favorite educational app developers (Park Math, Peek-a-Zoo, Fish School and more) this recently released, highly interactive app lets kids explore, create and share.
The app includes a catalogue of short YouTube videos in educational categories like science, geography and animals. Then using those videos as the starting point to inspire wonder (like why to stars twinkle? or why are yawns contagious?) kids can then take on 120 creative challenges that only they can solve in their very own unique and creative way. And, no, this goes way beyond your basic vinegar-and-baking-soda experiments.
What is so captivating about WonderBox is the truly inspired challenges that will not only speak to kids’ curiosity, but will also push them to explore. The app also contains all of the tools needed to tackle the challenges, whether kids want to draw, record, take photos or much, much more. Some of the challenges include designing a castle, adding face paint to a selfie you’ve taken, drawing like Picasso, creating a floor plan, writing a comic, designing a chair, making an environmentally friendly car, putting together a business plan, or pretending to be a basketball player. Cool, right?
And this is even cooler: It’s free. Download from iTunes here.
