Problem-Solving App Introducing Simple Machines and Mechanical Motion

Crazy Gears from Edoki Academy gets children to think critically and explore physics and other STEM topics. This puzzle-like app for iOS asks students to construct gears to find a way to “pull themselves to the next level.” Students figure it out on their own as they drag and drop various items into place, experimenting to discover different ways to connect a ball and chain so the next level gets “pulled” across the screen. Through 61 levels, the number of tools and gadgets increases, including wheels, gears, rods, pulleys, weights, racks, and hooks. Students are introduced to STEM skills that connect to tasks across disciplines. Teachers can create multiple user accounts so that individual students can play and not lose their progress. A guide for teachers offers definitions of the physics concepts and background information related to the tasks. Cost: $2.99
