  • Great app!

    by London is cool!

    I love this app! It teaches you about almost anything, and they are very funny. It has thousands of movies, and has a variety of information and activities about each one. Everyone should try it!

  • Great school!

    by Clairebearlaw

    I got it for school research and it works great! I use it to study and review things before a big test

  • Amazing

    by ??????aubxhxvfvbcvggh

    I love it, it teaches me new things and the movies always have something funny at the end.

  • Num

    by Nepeta Leijion

    It's fine, just you can't send your quiz results to the teacher, by E-Mail.

  • Awesome!

    by rparkstx

  • Great education!

    by Kk kares

    I recommend brain pop because it's really good education but it's also fun to watch! For example, I watched the featured movie on basketball (and trust me) I knew nothing about it but now I fell like I know so much about it! Also I didn't really care about learning about basketball but the movie made it fun! If I were you, I would get brain pop... Not just because your teacher assigned it or something, but because it's a fun way of learning. I know I get on on a regular basis and just sit down on the couch and watch a few episodes on maybe what were doing in class or just something that looks good! Then the last thing is you can do is take a quiz at the end. ( like I always do)


    by Snowmansnow

    This APP is so AMAZING! So Fun and Awesome! But there is 1⃣ thing about this APP and it is that u have 2⃣ have an Account for it and Pay Money for the Account I think?

  • This is a good game :D XD


    This is a fun and smart app that can help you in school my science teacher uses this all the time to see what we are gonna learn. This is a game this has nothing to go with learning or a related game it's named roblox it is the best game ever you have to admit i adore brain pop and stay at school kids ( even though it can be boring. ._.) ok like and rate brainpop its good for you

  • Best Educational App of the Year

    by Kelsey Stauffer

    I think this is a very educational app for students to learn. My science teacher uses this all the time and we all love it.

  • Print? Email?

    by Data driven instruction92

    The online version is much better. This app allows you to see the video and take the quiz...however you can't print or email the quiz results. This feature is imperative for learning, accountability and data collection purposes when BrainPop is used in (and out) the classroom.
