Science360 is a free app that provides images and videos that can be used to engage students in science and engineering topics from around the globe. Also, Science360 provides breaking news on topics from NSF, scientists, colleges, universities, and NSF science and engineering centers. This app could be used to help bring in real-world applications to science material taught in the classroom. As a teacher, I would use this app to bring in visual learning into my everyday lessons. With information being easy to share from this app, students could use app for research and projects as well.
