GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Science and technology go together well, so it's no wonder here are plenty of free apps available that teach and explore the world of science.

There is science in everyday life. Even in your morning cup of coffee! Most of us drink it for a specific molecule we know as caffeine. Ever wonder what caffeine looks like?

The Molecules app shows you the structure of this stimulant and countless other molecules down to each atom.

And after viewing the double helix of DNA, you can extract strawberry DNA using the KidScience app, which features kid-friendly experiments you can accomplish right in your own kitchen.

VideoScience is also a great choice for experiments like demonstrating the effects of air pressure or capturing carbon dioxide inside soap bubbles.

If you've asked yourself what mitosis is? The interactive Mitosis app can explain every detail on how the cell divides.

Or if it all interests you, Science360 provides global images and videos on everything from mutant ears of corn to deadly mosquitoes.

For even more great science apps, here are some suggestions from sciencefocus.com.
