ScienceWerkz Adds Subscription Plans for Science E-Books
Werkz Publishing has launched a subscription plan for its ScienceWerkz science education apps. Users can now access all 32 apps in the series for a year for as little as $6 per year.
"Under the previous pricing model, users paid a yearly license fee for each science app title they downloaded, which meant that access to the full science education suite could cost upwards of $90 per year," according to a news release. Under the new scheme, a $6 school site subscription will provide one year of access to all the apps for an unlimited number of school devices. Teacher/home subscriptions, which grant one year of access to the full suite via the device of the user's choice, are also available for $24.
The apps are digital textbooks that are downloaded to the user's device, so no Internet connection is required after installation. Categories include general science, life science and biology, chemistry, physical science and Earth science. Thirty-two apps are available for computers running Windows or Mac OS X, and 30 are available for Android and iOS tablets. Additional mobile apps are in development, according to information released by the company.
"Our science education technology combines informative text with engaging visuals. Teachers appreciate the well-designed app and content developed by science educators, while students enjoy the truly interactive experience," said Mark Salata, CEO at Werkz, in a prepared statement. "Not only do ScienceWerkz apps encourage readers to explore topics more deeply, but they allow for self-paced learning. This means that ourscience e-books can accommodate students at all levels — from special education to gifted programs to English language learners."
