Sid the Science Kid App for iPhone
Written by Holly on Thursday September 24, 2009
Hey, parents of young scientists! Now you can have a microphone just like Sid the Science Kid!
In each episode, Sid uses his trusty toy microphone to share his questions and ideas. Now all of Sid's friends at home can do the same in real life with the help of an easy-to-use iPhone app. The app is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch and is available free through iTunes!
The app allows kids to record their own voices or other sounds, for up to 20 seconds, and then play them back. Even the youngest scientists will be able to interact with the buttons to make laughs, applause and animal sounds.
It's the producers' and designers' hope that kids will learn to identify the qualities and sources of sound, experiment with sounds that are quiet or loud, change the pitch of their voice and record things of various distances to see how they sound.
Parents, you could also use the laugh tracks and applause tracks to jazz up your personal messages and lessons to your science kids.
