Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab,developed by FatRedCouch, shows children aged 5–9 how much fun science can be. Using this app, students set out on an adventure to an unknown world—a world where Thomas Edison had a secret lab in which he invented a virtual version of himself and a nearly completed robot to guide and inspire future generations of young scientists. The secret lab, Edison’s virtual ego, and his prototype robot remained hidden until Angie, a 12-year-old prodigy, cracked the secret coded message that Edison left behind. The young genius and her science club move into the lab, and the fun begins. Students can explore the lab, play games, learn about Thomas Edison and other inventors, meet the Secret Lab Kids, learn about inventions and discoveries, create holograms, and enjoy videos. The app is available for iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire. Cost:Free
