Encyclopædia Britannica launches educational apps for kids

Encyclopædia Britannica is launching a brand new series of educational and engaging apps for children, aged 8-12. The interactive apps have been designed to keep kids busy for hours on end with exciting facts, maps, memory games, puzzles, quizzes and videos and are a fantastic tool to help kids get their homework and projects done.

The first three apps in the series – Volcanoes, Dinosaurs and Ancient Egypt – are now available, with other educational themed apps, based around the national curriculum set to launch in the coming months. As well as being easy to use, entertaining and informative, parents can also be assured that the apps are safe and appropriate for kids to use.

Encyclopædia Britannica has been publishing online and digital media for more than 15 years and is convinced that now is the time to offer its content to the growing number of parents using their mobile devices to download educational content for their children.

Ian Grant, managing director, Encyclopædia Britannica (UK) Ltd, stated: “More and more parents are now allowing their children to use their mobile devices and, perhaps more significantly, a large percentage now download games and educational apps specifically for them to use. We feel that apps offer huge potential for us and are one of the most effective approaches for reaching out to learners everywhere. The new products will deliver the extensive, reliable content traditionally associated with Encyclopædia Britannica, in a completely fresh, exciting and compelling format.”

Each app will be available to download from the iTunes Store for £4.99 each.
