Explore building systems and structure through play with Skyscrapers

This app is very interesting and is a great tool for exploration on the structure and systems of large buildings. There are some quirky aspects to it: for example, the exploration of the plumbing system has characters using toilets (with farting sounds!) that plug up the system. These features can distract students from developing understanding.. Because of all the interesting things that each system can do, it takes quite a bit of exploration for students to develop specific understandings about the functioning of the systems. The best use of this app for young students might be as part of a makerspace center, where time/materials are provided for exploration.
