Color Uncovered, the Exploratorium’s very first iPad app, was released last week and was quickly downloaded by scores of curious users. It currently sits at #1 for free educational apps, much to the excitement of Exploratorium staff, who volleyed emails back and forth all week, keeping each other posted on its current rating as it climbed the ranks.
The app, like the Exploratorium, takes a wide view on colorful phenomena, touching briefly on everything from history to biology. Learn about optical illusions, canine color vision, historical paint palettes, and how colors make us feel. Our online engagement team even managed to sneak in some hands-on experiments and teach you a little bit about the iPad itself.
