    "Science360 is such a cool app -- what a great combination of education and entertainment. I could spend all afternoon looking at the amazing images and learning more about science.

    "If you're a parent of a young child or just interested in becoming more knowledgeable, BrainPOP is a fantastic app for learning about the world. Contrary to common belief, parents don't have all of the answers to all of the questions about the world that kids want to know. Through using this app, I can have fun while learning about the world."
