The DIY Sun Science app (for iPhones and iPads) allows families and educators to investigate and learn about the Sun at home, at school, or anywhere you go! The app provides 13 free, easy to use, hands-on activities, plus image, videos, and much more! Each activity includes material lists, step-by-step instructions, and detailed explanations. The activity materials are widely available and inexpensive, and you probably have many of them in your own home. The free app is available for iOS 6.1.3 and above.
