About the app

Peep & The Big Wide World Paint Splat

Ready, Set, Splat! In this Paint Splat app, which features the hilariously quirky duck, Quack and his plucky robin friend, Chirp, kids make Quack jump on paint tubes to mix colors on the fence. Watch out for the hose!

Paint Splat offers kids the opportunity to experiment with mixing colors or match a color Chirp holds up a on a card. If the color orange, purple or green (which make up the secondary color group) is successfully created, Chirp offers some of the harder-to-mix tertiary colors. Like many of our games, this one gets harder only if the player is succeeding.

By tapping on the paint tubes, players can make Quack squirt up to two blobs of blue, yellow, and red paint onto a fence. Tapping on the hose washes the paint off, enabling kids to have a fresh start.

Kids can experiment with mixing whatever colors they like or they can try to match the color Chirp holds up.

The PEEP and the Big Wide World Paint Splat app from WGBH was produced by WGBH, the producers of PEEP and the Big Wide World, with additional development work by CloudKid. The animated series PEEP and the Big Wide World gives wings to the innovative idea of teaching science to preschoolers. Wry and distinctive visual humor, charming plotlines, and lovable characters combine with a comprehensive science curriculum to attract and engage kids three to five years old.

More about Money Math Duel – Split Screen

I built Money Math Duel for my daughter who is in second grade and learning currency. I wanted a way for her to practice adding up coins and dollars to get more familiar with making change or paying for items.

Customize each side to make it easier or harder depending on the player. This is a great way to equalize the playing field if one player is stronger than the other. For example, one player can adjust their settings to only generate questions between $15 and $20, while player two can adjust their settings to only generate questions between $0.01 and $1.

“My daughter is very new to spelling, having taken a whole word reading approach so far rather than phonics and having a significant visual impairment – we have noticed that she only looks at the first letters of words. Special Spelling is worth its weight in gold as we try to introduce her to the world of spelling and looking beyond the first letters.”

About Stellar Tour: AR Stargazing

Stellar Tour is the ultimate guide to the cosmos. Point your device towards the night sky to explore any type of astronomical object: constellations, stars, exoplanet systems, galaxies, nebulae, planets, moons, and more.

Astrophysicist Dr. Aaron Day provides a tour guide for alien worlds, rather than the standard inundation of random facts as if collected from a boring old encyclopedia. Stellar Tour tells the scientifically accurate tale of the conditions on the ground, in the seas, or floating through the clouds of the Solar System. 

Exoplanet systems are displayed in their actual location on the sky. Exoplanet sizes, temperatures, and orbits are given for nearly all known exoplanets.

Using images collected up close by NASA’s many probes, all the planets and major moons of the Solar System are displayed in exquisite detail. Planets and moons can be rotated and viewed from any angle. High resolution images are displayed in vibrant color, representing not just visible light, but ultra violet, infrared, and even radar when available.

Take the Stellar Tour!

Images are provided by NASA, JPL, Lsmpascal, and others. Credits are given with the captions of each image.
