BrainPOP UK launches free educational iPhone App

Described as "a fun way to learn about brains, bogies, black holes and more" (!), what's not to like ?! I haven't got an iPhone so I can't give you a proper review but I thought it might keep your little ones entertained for a while and teach them some fun facts at the same time. Tell me how you get on !


Educational resource provider BrainPOP UK® has just launched a free app for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, bringing its popular duo Tim and Moby and their informative animations directly to kids’ fingertips.

The BrainPOP UK® Featured Movie App is now downloadable from the iTunes App Store in the UK and Ireland - where it has already been highlighted as “New and Noteworthy” in the Education category.

BrainPOP UK® was set up to deliver educational resources to children aged 5-14 in a fun and easy to absorb way. Loveable characters Tim and Moby bring learning to life and make teaching an easy part of everyday life – whether in the classroom or at home.

With topics spanning Science, Humanities, English, Maths, Arts, PSHE & Citizenship and Design & Technology, all BrainPOP UK® materials are aligned with Key Stage 2 & 3 curricula and guidance, and Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland.

The app delivers a new animated movie each day alongside a related quiz to test your knowledge. Topics are timely and contextual, covering current events, historical figures and milestones, holidays, and much more. From fun stuff such as why the body makes bogies, to educational movies covering events such as September 11th, this engrossing app is perfect to engage children’s curiosity.

The original version of the app – launched in April 2010 in the US, has been downloaded nearly half a million times and is recommended by leading publications such as The New York Times and iPhone Life magazine.

With more than 10 million visits a month to its global sites, BrainPOP’s award-winning educational resources are used by students at home and in thousands of schools worldwide.
