Hello, Is this app available for Android?

for the Android, it's Science 360 Radio, so only the audio stories. I have it on my Android tablet and probably use it more than the one on my iPad.

I have this app on my iPad, and I get the Science360 email every morning - I read it instead of the newspaper over morning coffee (I'd have to go outdoors to get the newspaper, and I'm just not awake enough for that!!) I love the breadth and diversity of the site, and you can go as deep as you'd like. Definitely one to check out. ~ kathy g

Yes, it is both a cool and a useful site. NSF has other goodies available to teachers. Many of the innovative curriculum units that were developed under their aegis are available for all teachers to use. It is worth letting your fingers walk through a search engine and find useful goodies. Please share others if you spend more time on NSF sites. ~patty

Hi Everyone, I am delighted that educators continue to browse this thread and find the NSF app useful. If you use it, open a line and chat with us about what you found useful and how you are using the app. Your little chat will be a great way to mentor a colleague:} ~patty

Would this be something useful for iPhones and if so, has there been any talk of it being developed for that platform?
