NASA Visualization Explorer is a free app produced by NASA that encourages users to explore different elements of NASA’s ongoing space research. The app’s interface is arranged by ‘stories’ which are picture/text/video combination snippets of an area of NASA’s research. Wifi is a must for this app’s interface, it doesn’t function well in a strictly offline environment. New stories are added often and users can use a search tool to locate stories on specific subject matter. Each story also has a hyperlink to more detailed content on NASA’s main website. The app stories are engaging and provide a good introductory look at a wide variety of NASA’s ongoing space-based projects.
NASA Visualization Explorer is suitable for Upper Primary and Secondary.
