"This well-designed odyssey truly does put the universe at viewers’ fingertips." - Kirkus Reviews

With this app, kids (and kids at heart) can easily zoom in and out to explore the universe. They can zoom up to see neighborhoods, cities, Earth’s atmosphere, and the Earth. They can also zoom down into the microscopic world to explore down to the level of bacteria. The beautiful and kid friendly illustrations make these scientific concepts more accessible and less intimidating.

This LITE version contain a third of the content of the full version of Tick Bait’s Universe.

For ages 7 to 70!

Educationally, Tick Bait’s Universe and Tick Bait’s Universe LITE help kids grasp complex scientific concepts. Children have a hard time relating to objects and scientific concepts that are so different from their everyday world. These apps help kids understand the scale of objects in the universe and a child’s own place in it. It also provides an environment to introduce many scientific concepts and facts that otherwise would remain abstract and hard for kids to understand.

The result is an app that encourages a child’s natural curiosity about science without overwhelming him or her.
Here are just a few of the questions that Tick Bait’s Universe answers:
-Did the space shuttle fly above or in Earth’s atmosphere?
-Why do thunderheads have flat tops?
-How tall is the tallest building on earth?
-What microscopic things live on us?
-And more…
