Get engaging science, engineering, mathematics and education images and videos! Available anytime, anywhere with the National Science Foundation’s award-winning, free Science360 for iPad app. Another resource for STEM to share among ourselves and others, too..... patty

Hello, Is this app available for Android?

Kathleen Gorski Kathleen Gorski 9310 Points

for the Android, it's Science 360 Radio, so only the audio stories. I have it on my Android tablet and probably use it more than the one on my iPad.

Thank you for this recommendation. I'm always looking for useful, engaging apps.

Carlos Castillo CARLOS CASTILLO 720 Points

Thanks, I'll be sure to use it

I have this app on my iPad, and I get the Science360 email every morning - I read it instead of the newspaper over morning coffee (I'd have to go outdoors to get the newspaper, and I'm just not awake enough for that!!) I love the breadth and diversity of the site, and you can go as deep as you'd like. Definitely one to check out. ~ kathy g

Yes, it is both a cool and a useful site. NSF has other goodies available to teachers. Many of the innovative curriculum units that were developed under their aegis are available for all teachers to use. It is worth letting your fingers walk through a search engine and find useful goodies. Please share others if you spend more time on NSF sites. ~patty

Hi Everyone, I am delighted that educators continue to browse this thread and find the NSF app useful. If you use it, open a line and chat with us about what you found useful and how you are using the app. Your little chat will be a great way to mentor a colleague:} ~patty

Would this be something useful for iPhones and if so, has there been any talk of it being developed for that platform?

Shohani Islam Shohani Islam 1155 Points

Would be very useful for students.

Wow! I definitely need to look into this, I am always trying to think of new ways to incorporate technology into the classroom. Thank you so much for sharing!

I love the idea of this! dos it have to be approved by administration or can I just apply it to my classroom? Can It be used on any device?
