What is it
Explorium – Space for Kids – allows children to travel through the stars with Alex and Alice to discover the wonders of the Universe. The encyclopaedia contains the facts which the children unlock along their journey.
Children can learn amusing astronomical facts, take part in mini-games, and collect all your courage to become a real space hero!

What our experts think
We liked the way in which this app linked to the Key Stage 2 curriculum for Science; it is a good way to develop children’s understanding of Earth and Space in a fun interactive way. The level of scientific vocabulary used was good.
The mini games were fun and challenging; they required children to concentrate and use their memory skills.
It would be even better if...
We would like to have seen clearer instructions of how to play the app.
