Calling all future scientists!
Welcome to Toca Lab! Explore the colorful and electrifying world of science and meet all 118 of the elements from the periodic table.
Discover elements by experimenting with the lab tools!
* Take your element for a spin in the centrifuge.
* Warm them up in the Bunsen burner.
* Put the element on ice with the cooling agent!
* Add a drop or two of mysterious liquids from the test tubes.
* Change their voltage and make them magnetic with the oscilloscope.
Each element has it's own personality. In Toca Lab, what does Neon sound like? Is Gold heavy or light? Is Nitrogen squishy or hard? Explore, inspect, and study each one and let us know! Can you find all 118?
The time has come, future scientists, to head into the lab to explore and discover. Put on your lab coat and protective eye gear because things are about to get experimental!
Toca Lab is a place for playing and having fun, and with it we hope to inspire kids to explore science. While the periodic table in Toca Lab is accurate, the way new elements are created is not. Instead, it’s a fun way to experiment, discover and create curiosity in the world of science. Toca Lab is just a starting point for further exploration!

What's New in Version 1.0.4
We gave our quirky lab a quick polish and fixed an issue where music would disappear on certain devices running iOS9. It's all gone now. Phew!
From a parent/teacher perspective
While I love the concept and the immediate interest my 9 year old showed in the periodic table, I am annoyed that the actual names of the elements are nowhere to be found.
App does not give very good directions and the descriptions I read online, implied that they would be learning more about each element. She completed the chart in a few hours and actually pulled up another periodic table on the computer to see what the elements were. When you click on the elements in the table, they just make little sounds, why not have them say their name... or at least have the name show up on the clipboard at the bottom of the screen? This way they would be learning more useful information, while having fun.
Very cute app, just could be better.
What now?! (READ PLEASE!)
When I first got this app, I expected that this would be more experimental. Unfortunately, I was wrong. You have 6 stations, and all you have to do is do a simple action, and your little creature thingee will either react moderately, or will transform. That is all there is to this game. I immediately got bored. Now that I completed the fake periodic table, I have nothing to do. Toca Boca has created amazing games, but this isn't one of them. Sorry! Unless you like simple, easy games, I definitely don't recommend this app! I will give it 4-5 stars when Toca Boca makes this better! Sorry! 👎🏽😕😑🙄😖😤😴💤🙅🏽🙎🏽.
AMAZING app! One suggestion though...
I love this app! It is SO much fun! ( even though this is coming from a very sciencey person). But I wish it would include the names of the elements, and that there was a bit more things to do, like how the elements may appear in our everyday lives ( like oxygen,
For example, they should show a little icon of someone breathing). Because we use things like that sometimes. This app is great,
But just needs that improvement. Keep up the good work!
