What is it about?
When you begin playing Aniscience, you will take on the role of a small mouse in a burrow. You can move around through the burrows and up into the field above, exploring all of the creatures that live underground.
For those who...
- have children who love to explore
- want to learn more about science
Not for those who...
- aren't into animated cuteness
- don't have children
Why we love it
There's a lot for kids to like in Aniscience. The musical background is calm and soothing, and the sound effects are cute. The app also provides plenty of interactivity. You can tap on things to spur them to move, for example. There are plenty of creatures to learn about and things to do. One drawback to this app is there is no spoken narration of the scientific facts provided when you examine a creature. This could make the app difficult to use for really young learners who cannot yet read. Also, the app is pretty limited for the time being. You only get the burrow for free, and have to pay for the forest chapter. More chapters are coming, but for right now this app barely scratches the surface of what your kids could potentially learn from its fun format.
Aniscience is FREE but there are more add-ons
