This app is easy to use and navigate, with little teacher facilitation required other than to expand on the introductory concepts already contained within.
You can also opt for a more immersive experience and take one of Brian’s tours (either the Wonders of the Solar System or the Wonders of the Universe). Both category and tour-based navigation bring you to discrete articles on specific topics. Each article usually begins with a short video, and the user then scrolls down to view descriptions, images, and info-graphics.
