PhET provides fun, free, interactive, research-based science and mathematics simulations. We extensively test and evaluate each simulation to ensure educational effectiveness. These tests include student interviews and observation of simulation use in classrooms. The simulations are all open-source, written in Java, Flash or HTML5, and can be run online or downloaded to your computer. This video gives a brief introduction to our project.
