About Journeys of Invention

What is Journeys of Invention?

Journeys of Invention is a science museum brought to the iPhone and iPad. Users can examine and even operate some of the most important inventions in the history of man, and venture into interactive journeys that tell the story of the invention.


This app is available only for iOS devices for $9.99 and is rated users four years of age and older.

 

This polished, educational app is an interactive learning tool for tinkerers, scientists, inventors, and otherwise curious people of all ages. Journeys of Invention brings objects from the Science Museum in London to the users’ screen, allowing them to rotate, study, and even use some of the inventions, including the Large Hadron Collider and Robert Hooke’s 17th century microscope.

 

The 14 Journeys take users back through time to tell the stories of major discoveries and inventions of the past. Journeys of Invention is rated for users 4+, and it really is great for all ages.

 

Kids enjoy studying and playing with the foreign, old inventions, and adults enjoy learning where they came from and who made them. This app has the ability to spark an interest in invention or cultivate a passion in the youth that admires discovery and technology.

 

The developer of Journeys of Invention, Touch Press Inc, partnered with the Science Museum of London to create the app, and the stories of each invention are written by Science Museum curators.

 

Reviewers enjoy exploring the history of the objects and praise the clean functionality of the app, but have complained about the depth of the analysis of the objects, saying that the writers leave more to be desired.

Is Journeys of Invention safe for my kids?

Journeys of Invention is absolutely safe for kids of all ages. Younger children may not be interested in the content or history, but might enjoy rotating and playing with the objects or viewing the historic pictures.

As they grow older, they will get more and more use out of the app, paying closer attention to the content and history behind the inventions.

The app is free of violence and sexual content, and, as it is an app paid for up front, there are no in-app purchases.

Parents should use the app to spend time learning with their kids if they show interest in invention, tinkering, or technology, as the library of content offered by Journeys of Invention cannot be found in other apps, and kids might find great joy in diving deeper into subjects that interest them with their parents.

Of course, some kids may simply not be interested in such things, and will get little benefit from Journeys of Invention, which is fine as well.

The educational value of this app is very real, and it provides a safe place for kids to follow their interests in discovery and science, while offering some level of fun in doing so.
