Scientific Minds has a new partner in delivering its comprehensive science content to students – the Puffin Academy app. The Puffin Academy web browser is the fastest Flash mobile browser available, and it works on both iOS and Android devices. Scientific Minds' users can now access Science Starters for elementary, middle school, biology, and chemistry from these devices.
Patrick Keegan, Technology Coordinator for Scientific Minds, says this is good for sales to schools who use iPads and Android tablets, but he's especially excited about the ability to deliver the product to students who can view it on their own devices. "Our users have tried other Flash browsers in the past, but they just weren't reliable. We are so pleased with the speed and functionality of the Science Starters through this new app. Students can now get tutorial practice from their own smart phones on the bus ride home, or from anywhere."
Puffin Academy provides the app to k-12 students for free; however, they only allow users to access app;roved educational websites. Scientific Minds applied and was approved to the site's chosen list. Users simply download either the brower for iOS or the browser for Android, search for Scientific Minds, and login in to the user account through the Puffin Academy app.
Scientific Minds' Science Starters for elementary school, middle school, biology, and chemistry are available as a one year site license to both students and teachers. The company offers a free 7-day trial for each of its Science Starters products at http://www.ScientificMinds.com.
