Tinkerbox

Tinkerbox is a free iTunes application aimed to allow students and children to fiddle with physics and science to solve the puzzles and levels through the game. It was recommended rot me by a children's librarian from Edmonton Public Libraries. The age group recommended is 4+ but it would be very beneficial for students in grade 2 learning about gears and pulley systems.
