The Light and Sound HD app covers the topics of light and sound in a multimodal learning environment.
The content of the app spans several grade levels and the various learning modes are designed to facilitate easier learning and to improve attention.
This app contains 2 topics - Light and Sound. All these topics can be accessed from the home page.
Each topic is presented using multiple learning styles - Read and Learn, Touch and Learn, See and Learn, Watch and Learn, and Quiz and Learn. These can be accessed using the corresponding buttons from the topic page.

Touch and Learn - This learning style enables touch based learning using high definition pictures that have "hotspots". Each hotspot is an area on the picture that provides additional content when touched. The additional content can be in form of descriptive text or a relevant video. The user can swipe left or right, to navigate through the hotspot pictures.
See and Learn - This learning style incorporates visual learning. High definition photographs are presented with descriptive text below each photo to reinforce the topic.
Watch and Learn - Curated educational videos are used in this learning style. These ad-free videos are curated by our editorial team to enhance the learning for the particular topic.

Ratings and Reviews
Great for my after school STEM curriculum
I run an after school STEM course every year and now I have several iPads using which my teachers teach kids various science topics. We have both hands-on exercises and iPad apps to teach various science topic.
We use apps from Sprout Labs extensively as their depth of content in each app is unbeatable. We have several experiments around light and sound waves. Before we start on the experiments we ask the students to learn as much as they can from this app. They take a fews hours but at the end of it they come back with so much information and questions. Great app for curious kids.
Must buy if you are teaching light and sound unit
My school found out about Sprout Labs after attending a conference where one of their apps won an award. We tested out all their apps and found them very educative and engaging for a wide grade range. We really liked this particular app as its a difficult topic to teach. The kids really started engaging after they got a chance to play around with the app and watched all the videos and photos. They came back with questions and interesting facts and we had a really good class discussion. We highly recommend this app to schools and parents to download.
Light and Sound has been brought alive with this app
The two complementary physics topic has been integrated into one app with 5 different ways to learn in each topic - Read, Touch, See, Watch and Quiz. The app is fantastic learning tool for my class and I highly recommended it to all my fellow teachers and parents as well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
