Science is hard
There are often times when science is about things that are too small, too big, too dangerous too abstract or just too weird for students to grasp easily. This is where Sunflower for Science helps.
Our software has hundreds of high-impact animations and simulations to help visualise difficult ideas and draw out the key learning points
Our software gives you so many ‘what if’ questions, which you can then try for yourself, to provoke deeper thinking
All our software comes with built-in activities. Students can work through them in class or at home. They’re also a great way to help teachers start using our software on an electronic whiteboard
You’ll find the usual suspects – waves, forces, nuclear physics, circuits, heat transfer and more. Our physics software is especially interactive giving you loads of opportunities to ask questions and try for yourself.
Our chemistry software includes Bonding – our most popular App. There’s lots of great stuff to help visualise and interact with particles. You’ll find our indispensable Rates of Reaction simulation and don’t miss the 3D Periodic Table!
Our highly visual approach will help you with topics like circulation, plants, cells and digestion. The DNA app is a must-have. There’s simulations for enzymes and osmosis and a handy elodea experiment that’ll work every time!
You can buy our software as individual apps to help tackle a tricky topic using your iPad or Android tablet.
Get a bundle of our apps to run both online and in one complete free app. Access is for all students and teachers at school and home.
We’ve been making software for school science since 2002. It’s all we do! Over the years we’ve honed and improved our approach with tons of teacher feedback so you know you’ll get software that works in lessons.
Should I buy Apps or a School Subscription?
If your budget is tight or you just want help with an individual topic then go for individual Apps . If want to make a bigger impact across your school or if you want students to access Sunflower from home, then a School Subscription is the way to go.
How can my students run Sunflower for Science at home?
Firstly there's no login for students. Students get access via an "Activity Code". An activity code has this format: XY1234. Here's how it works....
Students can install the software on a PC, Mac, iPad or Android tablet. We don't currently support phones.
The installers are here

How do I share resources in my Learning Platform/e-mail/Facebook/Twitter?
One of the great things about the a School Subscription is just how easy it is to share resources with your students - no more passwords to remember!
Click the "Share" button on the menu at the top of the screen, and a link will be generated. This can be copied and pasted into your Learning Platform, into an e-mail - anywhere you like. The students could even write it into their homework diaries.
I'm having problems running the software. What can I do?
Call us on 0845 1300 680, or e-mail us at [email protected] We'd be happy to help.
Can I get discounts for buying Apps in volume
Yes, in the App Store get 50% off for 20 or more copies of the same App. See here
Google Play is however closing their system down in June 2018. See here
What's the difference between the Sunflower for Science App and the Individual Apps
If you have a School Subscription you can use the Sunflower for Science App for free. If you're a teacher you'll need to login. If you're a student you'll need a Share code from your teacher.
The Sunflower for Science App contains all our software. Individual Apps contain just one topic and you don't need to log in, but you do need to buy them!

What teachers say:
" Sunflower brings concepts to life and pupils can watch them over and over until it clicks.... For complex scientific explanations I have found it communicates clearly - and cuts my explanation time in half. "
Diane Wilson, Head of Science, Garth Hill College
What the critics say:
" It is not just an interactive whiteboard tool, not just software students can use and learn from, nor just a simulation tool that students can investigate with. It is all of these and it delivers on all counts "
