Welcome to Toca Lab! Explore the colorful and electrifying world of science and meet all 118 of the elements from the periodic table.
Discover elements by experimenting with the lab tools!
* Take your element for a spin in the centrifuge.
* Warm them up in the Bunsen burner.
* Put the element on ice with the cooling agent!
* Add a drop or two of mysterious liquids from the test tubes.
* Change their voltage and make them magnetic with the oscilloscope.
Each element has it's own personality. In Toca Lab, what does Neon sound like? Is Gold heavy or light? Is Nitrogen squishy or hard? Explore, inspect, and study each one and let us know! Can you find all 118?
The time has come, future scientists, to head into the lab to explore and discover. Put on your lab coat and protective eye gear because things are about to get experimental!
Toca Lab is a place for playing and having fun, and with it we hope to inspire kids to explore science. While the periodic table in Toca Lab is accurate, the way new elements are created is not. Instead, it’s a fun way to experiment, discover and create curiosity in the world of science. Toca Lab is just a starting point for further exploration!
About Toca Boca
Toca Boca is a game studio that makes digital toys for kids. We think playing and having fun is the best way to learn about the world. Therefore we make digital toys and games that help stimulate the imagination, and that you can play together with your kids. Best of all - we do it in a safe way without third-party advertising or in-app purchases.
The app is very easy to use, to begin you must enter a common or a scientific name, then the app will connect to the GBIF API and search for all the species matching the search term.
Once the user has selected one species, the app will connect with 3 different APIs to offer the following content:
The Wikipedia API will provide with detailed information about the species. The Flickr API will return the most relevant pictures. If the user taps on a picture they will be presented with the same image in full screen and higher resoltuion with a lightbox effect. The Youtube API will return a list of the most relevant videos which can be watched from inside the app.
Users are able to explore more species with similar taxonomy properties by selecting the second tab and tapping on a text link. It will automatically do a search query into the GBIF API where users can continue exploring new species.

Discover ANSTO tells the ANSTO story from its historic beginnings to the facility today, explaining nuclear science in a compelling and clear manner, and focussing on the cutting-edge research being done globally and nationally using ANSTO’s facilities, particularly at the world-class Bragg Institute.
This iPad app takes the reader on a journey of discovery, providing readers with an insight into the beginnings of nuclear science in Australia, to the top end research faculties currently used in nuclear research, including OPAL and the neutron beam instruments, the Australian Synchrotron and particle accelerator science.
Discover ANSTO is highly interactive, visually lush and boldly science oriented. It explains how the reactor creates a neutron beam using animations and slideshows, animation, maps and interactive graphics, making you want to explore at deeper and deeper levels.
It’s an app that will let scientists, researchers, professionals, students, families and schools access cutting-edge science presented with depth, clarity and a touch of magic.
