Kibo 360 – Explore the Japanese Experiment Module On the ISS
Kibo 360 is a free iPad app from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The app takes you on a virtual 360 degree tour of the Japanese Experiment Module on the International Space Station. You can use the app in “mission mode” or “free mode.” Mission Mode offers a guided tour of module while the free mode leaves it up to you decide what you want to explore. I preferred the free mode as it allowed me to tilt my iPad to move around the module. In either mode you will see red circles throughout the module. Tap the circle to learn about the piece of pictured equipment.
Kibo 360 could be a fun app for elementary school or middle school students to use to learn a little bit about what astronauts are doing on the International Space Station.
