Toca Lab: Elements

This app is provides an ingeniously designed virtual chemistry lab where emerging young scientists can explore how different materials interact. The incredible part is that children do not have to be able to read or understand all there is to know about chemistry to engage in tinkering in the lab. As children dabble with the “elements,” they create new “elements” for their own periodic table. Please note that the “elements” and periodic table are not based on the actual scientific reactions occurring but rather give children the understanding that when elements are placed under certain conditions, a new element can be created. The app does not provide narration, so parents can support their child by providing lots of vocabulary and asking questions that prompt curiosity while using the app. For example: What do you think is happening? Encourage your child to ask questions too. This app will make your child feel like they have all the tools of a mad scientist! The app is appropriate for children ages 4-8 and is $2.99.
