Great list of apps. I would also add for all ages our open end, award winning app - Faces iMake - Right Brain Creativity. It is used in art classes and by therapists across the world. Here is a quote from a teacher who uses it in her class - "As a teacher, I am required to infuse technology into my lessons and teach 21st century skills to best prepare my students for the future. Faces iMake teaches students how to pinch, zoom, resize, move, turn, flip, duplicate, send to back, bring to front, add, remove and delete on an iPad, all while making creative choices to compose digital works of art. In doing so, students meet these National Technology standards: 1. Creativity and Innovation Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. a. Apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes b. Create original works as a means of personal or group expression"

While there are some nice apps listed here, unfortunately you did not illustrate how any of these apps relate to the STEAM concept. STEAM integration is about how science, technology, engineering, the Arts, and Math relate TOGETHER. Anyone can find a list of apps under any subject area. The key is to show how any one of these apps could cross over into other subject areas making more meaningful learning experiences.

What a great list of apps. I've been so used to spending hours on the internet trying to find the perfect one. I have been using apps from but have been pretty clueless about Science and the other subjects. This is really helpful. Thank you!
