PhET are interactive simulations covering topics in physics, chemistry, math, biology,
environmental sciences etc. for elementary, middle and High School levels.
The simulation makes the students understand the concept and exploring the topic.
They also help the students to co-relate the topics with real-life examples.
Simulations are a great way to capture students attention.
Teachers can also create activity worksheets that encourage students to learn from simulations. Read more
