Stephen Hawkings intuitive educational app explains the principles that control our universe and facilitates learning via experimentation.

View on the App Store: Stephen Hawking's Snapshots of the Universe - Random House Digital, Inc.

Features of Stephen Hawkings Snapshots of the Universe:

  • The Universe explained with experiments to test your knowledge.
  • Packed with easy to understand information and diagrams.
  • Subjects such as Einsteins Theory of Relativity, Black Holes, Time Warps, The Solar System, Gravity, The Relativity of Motion plus many more.
  • Brings your child up to date with the latest scientific findings.
  • Encouragement is used during the exercises to motivate your child to true understanding of the experiment.
Detailed knowledge on the principles of our universe from Professor Stephen Hawking, whose goal is "a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is, and why it exists at all."

Explore 8 major topics each packed with information, images, experiments and explanations.  

The app is easy to follow, enabling you to jump easily between subjects. The amount of high quality content is excellent.  This app provides an excellent course and guide for every child to understand the principles of the universe.

The younger ones can have fun with some of the experiments but in the main the app is more suited to older children of reading age and adults.  The introduction movie is fabulous for the entire family!  iPad Lad, age 10, went through all the experiments, he both enjoyed and learned from them.  

A 'must have' for the educational family iPad library!
