This collection of interactive, research-based simulations introduces students to basic physical phenomena. The simulations cover a variety of topics: motion, sound, and waves; light and radiation; electricity, magnets, and circuits; chemistry; and many others. The simulations can be run from the web site or downloaded for later use, and are accompanied by a collection of lessons and activities that use them. There is also information on how to download and run the simulations and links to publications about the project and studies of the effectiveness of the simulations in teaching. Educators are also invited to contribute ideas for lesson or activities that use the simulations.
