App of the Month

Every month we are going to feature a different, and hopefully FREE, iPad/iPod/iPhone/Android educational application. Visit our ever-changing app page.

The App of the Month for July is Mission to Mars AR by SN Digital LLC ( iOS and Android ).


Explore Mars with the power of AR. Take an interactive look at Perseverance and other rovers, drive them around, and explore Mars in immersive 3D.

Harness the power of AR to explore the Red Planet through our amazing rovers. With Perseverance now on Mars, take an up-close interactive look at this and other rovers that paved the way. You can even drive one down your street.

From the treacherous landing attempt to the flight of the first interplanetary helicopter, this app brings the mission to life through augmented reality experiences grounded in real equipment and events. Engaging, informative and fun, this is the best way to explore Mars without going there yourself! Download for free.

App features:

MEET THE ROVERS - Get an interactive look at rover design, from science tools to camera power. See how rovers have evolved into the most sophisticated robots ever built for space.

DRIVE THE ROVERS - Place a rover on your desk, driveway or street. Then drive it around and snap photos and video to share.

MARS OVERVIEW – Put the entire globe of Mars in front of you, spin it, and discover features both alien and familiar.

LAUNCH THE ROCKET – Place the Atlas V rocket anywhere you want and launch it with authentic mission audio.

MARS PORTAL – Walk through a portal onto the surface of Mars to see Perseverance in action, then jump into the future to explore a human settlement.

7 MINUTES OF TERROR – Control the nail-biting landing sequence yourself and see if you can do better than cutting-edge robotic automation.

MISSIONS ON MARS – Game your way through Perseverance missions on the surface. Drive around hazards to complete different objectives – including flying the helicopter Ingenuity.

The app also features an array of Mars images, quizzes, and video clips from the Smithsonian Channel documentary MAKING TRACKS ON MARS.


Mission to Mars AR is available for Apple and Android devices.

Compatibility: Requires iOS 11.0 or later on Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Android version 7.0 and up on your Android device.
