About Crazy Gears

Crazy Gears is a problem-solving game that gets kids thinking critically, problem solving, and exploring physics and other STEM topics. This engaging puzzle-like app asks students to construct gears to complete each level. Users will be introduced to important STEM skills that connect to tasks across disciplines. This is a really creative, highly accessible and fun option for exploring physics and engineering. 

Crazy Gears Review

Crazy Gears is a fantastic app to use with students starting to learn about simple machines. Whether you are using similar manipulatives in the real world or are simply looking to give students an opportunity to explore a new idea, Crazy Gears is a perfect choice. Parents can track kids' progress through the levels, which can help provide inspiration points for which areas to explore more together. Allowing kids to devise their own levels would be a nice feature. This app is intuitive and doesn't give explicit directions of what users need to do. Kids figure it out on their own as they drag and drop various items into place, experimenting to discover different ways to connect a ball and chain so the next level gets "pulled" across the screen.  This app could be used as enrichment, station exploration, or as a recommendation to families with children interested in learning more about STEM topics.
