Amazing biological fun!

My four year old wants to be a marine biologist after reading through this app / exhibit with me. She is excited to visit fireflies in Eastern North America and dive deep into the ocean to visit her favorite - the anglerfish!?


The only thing this app needs is support for the retina display. Other than that, it is awesome!

Amazing app!

I was looking for something as a supplement for a grade 8 light & optics course, and this was it! Loved the app, the integrated videos and the slide animations! Great job!
