Chris has captured the hearts and minds of millions of people, young and old. His daily postings and feeds on Twitter allowed us to actually experience space without leaving the comfort of our homes. He's been an inspiration to anyone fascinated with space science and technology.

Great site for resources

Janet Price's curator insight, September 24, 2013 8:30 PM

Some excellent apps to use! free

 

Joe Liu's curator insight, October 23, 2013 5:00 PM

This site can be used to have students download free apps that would be relevant for understanding and increasing the curiosity for the Space topic. I have already downloaded two of the apps which I found to engage the class as a whole.  They can use the apps as resources to complete assessments on phases of the moon, to support their own observations.

 

The best aspect is the free access. This means even more students can have access to this resource. However, it would be great if this site was updated more regularly with new apps when they become available.
