I Love Science is a fully interactive science lab that
teaches science in the most fun and effective manner possible: by letting young
players discover the principles of science for themselves. Three friendly
animated characters guide you through one hundred exciting experiments and
science activities, each with a challenging question-and-answer session and
full science reference.
I Love Science! is the third title in the highly successful
I Love series of activity-based educational CD-ROMs. Aimed at children aged
seven to eleven, it will enchant all children - even those who normally find
science difficult - by leading them from first principles to sophisticated
science problems with lots of humor and practical "real-world" activities
thrown in. It also offers clear feedback to parents and teachers about

"I Love Science is designed as an interactive science lab
enlivened by three animated characters Mo, Rosie, and Al. Kids explore 3
different areas, as follows:
- Mo's Workshop: Mo, whose full name is Mo Mentum, hosts
the physics lab. Topics covered are Forces, Electricity, Light, Sound, and
- Rosie's Treehouse: Rosie is a hilarious girl who hosts
the treehouse activities that focus on biology. The activities involve sorting
various pictures that are attached to a moving clothesline in arcade (timed)
fashion, as well as exploratory activities within the main topics of Humans,
Animals, Plants, and Environments.
- Al's Kitchen: Kids learn about chemistry in this lab - as
they test, mix, and heat materials in the kitchen. There are activities
relating to Matter in the sorting, testing, changing, and separating
categories. Each activity starts off with a bit of reading in the science book
about the topic at hand, then kids play the activity which involves
experimenting with different materials in a variety of ways, and when they're
ready, they answer a series of 5 multiple choice questions.
"We are impressed with the fact that explanations are given
when an answer is right (so kids will learn even when they made a lucky
multiple-choice guess) or wrong. Keep in mind that some of the timed activities
require some really fast reflexes, so kids without the best eye-hand
coordination, who know their material may, feel behind.
"Children interested in the world of science will find this
game appealing. There is a good amount of content covered, and a nice mix of
styles of learning activities arcade, timed, exploration, and
question-and-answer. The characters have just the right attitude for the
targeted age group of 7-11, and are really quite funny. Rosie, for example,
ends most of her statements with a rhyme ("you'll do fine, sunshine", "that was
way cool, toadstool", "'fraid not, flowerpot", etc.)."
