From manipulating molecules to exploring our universe, Airspace offers many science apps covering a wide range of core concepts in physics, chemistry, and biology. Here are six apps that will take students on a journey from microscopic to cosmic.

As always, we want to hear about how students are learning with these and other apps – please submit your stories, pictures and videos here.

Teachers – if you have ideas for how these or other Leap Motion apps could be built into lesson plans and used in your classroom, we’d love to hear from you. Please email PR @ with your ideas.
