Software Review:    I Love Science!

Related Links
 

There are not too many edutainment software titles that are devoted to teaching kids, ages 7-10, general science concepts. This one makes a good choice. 

Children enter any of 3 learning areas, each of which is hosted by an animated character and is devoted to a broad science topic -- Energy and Forces, Life, and Matter. Children select 3 activities to play, and engage in such things as sorting games, testing of theories, and answering quizzes on what they have learned. Chances to read up on various topics are available.

This title combines arcade games, quizzes, and experiments in order to get science concepts across to kids. The character guides are characters indeed--they encourage and prod with humorous lingo. The game requires children to do some reading and research, so it is best for kids who can handle some basic reading.

 
Pros:
  • A wide range of early science topics in biology, physics, and chemistry are explored
  • Rather engaging

 

Cons:
  • Arcade games might be difficult for some kids.
