"Tick Bait is so inviting and so engaging that it just calls out for students to come and explore."
-- Lori Bracey 7th & 8th Grade Science Teacher, Southampton Intermediate School, New York
"This well-designed odyssey truly does put the universe at viewers’ fingertips."
-- Kirkus Reviews
For ages 7 to 70! - With this app, kids (and kids at heart) can easily zoom in and out to explore the universe. They can zoom up to see Earth’s atmosphere, our solar system, galaxies and beyond. They can also zoom down into the microscopic world to explore bacteria, viruses, DNA, atoms, protons and beyond.
The beautiful and kid friendly illustrations make these scientific concepts more accessible and less intimidating.
Educationally, Tick Bait’s Universe helps kids grasp complex scientific concepts. A proton is unimaginably small. A galaxy is unimaginably large. Children have a hard time relating to objects and scientific concepts that are so different from their everyday world. Tick Bait’s Universe helps kids understand the scale of objects in the universe and their own place in it. It also provides an environment to introduce many scientific concepts and facts that otherwise would remain abstract and hard for them to understand.
The result is an app that encourages a child’s natural curiosity about science without overwhelming him or her.
What's New in Version 1.04
Upgraded Graphics to take advantage of Retina display!
Tick Bait’s Universe is Fantastic!
Fun and educational, my kids love Tick Bait’s Universe! After spending 40 minutes with Tick Bait, my 10-year old was excitedly lecturing me about the solar system and atoms, telling me facts about the universe that I never knew! The new retina display really brings the amazing graphics to life. Great job!
Awesome STEM app
Very nice integration of some complex math (relative scale) and science concepts in a simple yet engaging format. I wish I had Tick Bait when I taught astronomy and physical science! A great aid and also a wonderful stand alone app to get your kids interested in math and science.
My students couldn't wait to try it themselves, very engaging.
