Little Yellow Star

Educational apps for secondary school students —

or anyone with an interest in science.

Rutherford and the Atom


The scientist Ernest Rutherford made a massive contribution to our understanding of the nature of matter by suggesting a model which fitted experimental data.

Comets - Snowballs from space


Far out, at the extremes of the solar system, orbits billions of icy, rocky bodies. These form the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud, and it's where comets such as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (recently visited by the ESA Rosetta probe) came from. This app forms a companion to GCSE level Physics or Astronomy for Students and anyone interested in space.

Meteors and Meteorites


Ideal for classroom or individual learning, this app will teach you the basics of Meteors and Meteorites - the extra-terrestrial rocks that occasionally hit the Earth.


Consisting of a professionally produced video, reference material, flash cards and self-testing material, this app brings outer space down to Earth.

Planetary Motion


With a mixture of animated video, text, quizzes and flash cards, learn about the motion within our Solar System. So you think you are standing still? Think again!
