Intended for children ages 4-8, the science-focused app enables kids to explore special creature powers as they pollinate flowers, bathe elephants and feed a family of raccoons.

Children can collect stickers and take a picture in a Creature Power Suit as they earn high scores and learn that animals can take them anywhere in science.
