Good Free App of the Day: Monster Heart Medic lets kids help monsters get heart healthy

I was just telling a friend of mine about one of my favorite apps, DIY Sun Science. I just discovered that there is a new app available from this developer, The Lawrence Hall of Science. This one takes on a new approach to apps. Unlike the science experiments and videos available in the DIY Science apps, this one takes kids on a fun adventure where a monster needs a diagnosis and help to lead a healthier life. Made for kids 9 years old and up, it is a fun twist to learning healthy lifestyles and see how the body works.

From iTunes:
Monster Heart Medic is an adventure game where you must help diagnose a friendly monster named Ragnar and guide him on his path to a healthier life. Through animations, simulations, achievements, and arcade games, you will learn about cardiovascular conditions and what steps can be taken to keep you and your monster healthy.


-Explore a rich world packed with colorful monsters and offbeat characters.
