Apps to get the kids out during summer, and maybe learn something too.
Project Noah is an site and mobile app to help your little ones explore both your backyard and local parks with missions to discover local flora and fauna, and upload their photos to learn more about what they've found.

SkyView - You don't need to be an astronomer to find stars or constellations in the sky, just an app on your phone. The makers of SkyView have a free version of their stargazing app that can help parents and their kids learn about the night sky by pointing their phone at the heavens and spot and identify celestial objects automatically.
For Android phones look for SkyView Free in the Google Play store, and SkyView Lite in the Apple App Store.
To make the best use of this app, consider a trip out to Observatory Park, part of the Geauga Park District in Montville. Open from 6AM to 1AM through Labor Day, this dark park has some of the best night sky viewing in North East Ohio.

Field Trip - This is a great app to learn about points of interest around you automatically, whether it's anywhere in Cleveland or while on that great summer road trip. The app can be setup to call out cool spots, like historic spots, interesting architecture, or film locations.
It's free and available for both Android and Apple devices.
