    The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics says that using iPads is better for teaching students scientific concepts than traditional classroom techniques.

    Science is so fascinating and important for children to explore.  But what is the best way to educate children in the sciences.  Scientists say the iPad.  Researchers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics say that the iPad helps students better grasp some nuances of science better than in the classroom. Their study revealed that high schoolers who used iPads to explore simulated space understood the concepts better than those who were taught by traditional classroom methods and the improvement was seen just after 20 minutes of tablet use.  They say that iPad  classrooms report stronger gains in understanding in biology, chemistry, physics, and geology.
