**iMums: "This is the perfect app for a budding scientist in your home..."
**Appymall: "My preschooler came out of the experiments curious and wanting to figure out “how” or “why” things happened as well as want to be do them in real life, away from the iPad."
**Parenting Chaos: "This app is the perfect addition for anyone with young children who is looking to expand that child’s exposure to science. It definitely gets the kid tested, momma approved label."**
Science experiments can be fun without the mess!
Piiig Labs is a digital playground for your child to explore science concepts in an old fashioned way, by putting together mini projects and learning through interaction and sometimes trial and error. By being “hands on” in the building process, kids get an inside look at how things work!
• 8 interactive kits with assembly parts; 2 more coming soon!
• Build a light bulb circuit and turn it on/off
• Put together a radio and tune to 5 different stations!
• Mix baking soda and vinegar for a volcanic eruption!
• Match animal sounds to the right farm animal
• Themes: electricity, circuits, chemical reaction, color mixing, radio frequency, vortex, sound, and more!
• Child-friendly design
• NO third party advertising
• NO in-app purchases
Piiig Labs is suitable for kids from 3-7 years old.
TESTIMONIALS FROM REAL USERS:
"Can I play that lovely game? The one I can make things in.” – Elsie, 3 year old user
“Tessa’s favorite was the colored volcano task. She enjoyed mixing colors and seeing the results. She knows how to make green, purple, brown, etc…but it was impressive for her to make it come to life.” – Lisa M., parent of 3
“I wish this app was around when I was still teaching! It would’ve been perfect for my science class.” – David C., former science teacher at Otago Boys’ School

Fun puzzle app with a science focus
This is a fun little game where children place the various pieces of the "experiment" in place to make it react in some way. For example, the first experiments include making a simple circuit and making a baking soda and vinegar volcano. Those are fun, but what I found really clever was the further experiments, which take the elements from the first ones and expand on them. So a secondary experiment allows the child to put together a radio, w/a dial the child can move as if it was being tuned to get different stations, or another experiment requires the child to add different colors to the volcano. I really liked this additional aspect; it gets children thinking about how basic science concepts can be used to explore more complex ideas. It is a fun app, with cute graphics, and a clever way to get children interested in some basic science ideas.
Good Simplification of science concepts for kids
I think this app is really good at allowing students to see the key components needed for science experiments. It also shows that without all of the pieces, the experiment won't work. It has a little light bulb that that gives more advanced information and explainations about why the experiment works, what causes the change, or facts about the scientist that discovered/ invented it. I think so some of the facts are a bit advanced for small children, but if there was a feature for it to read aloud the text it might help.
Fun to learn science
This is a great beginning app to teach young students some of the basics of science principles with this app. I really liked the background information found on the site about the different topics and look for more to come. It is a nice beginning for students who are just learning or struggle with some of the science concepts.
