Thinkin' Science provides an informative elementary-science resource for young students. It examines everything from familiar life science, to earth science, to physical science. Users study animals by viewing their characteristics and habitats, discover how sunlight and the Earth’s rotation interact and with what results, and experiment with pendulums, levers and catapults, and the physical phenomenon that effect them.
Aiding students in their learning endeavors are ‘Science Scouts,’ marginally attractive characters who provide helpful feedback throughout the program. Activities involve experimentation, memory and deduction games; and tools are provided to help students with each activity. Information is easily accessed from the "Science Web" to help children succeed with these activities, keeping the frustration level low, while numerous ability levels allow students to continually advance to more difficult challenges. As users successfully complete activities, they are rewarded with printable ‘treasures,’ including puzzles, mazes and games.
