Teaching and Learning STEM with PhET Simulations

April 2
11:00am-12:00pm
SI 4127

Karina K. R. Hensberry, Research Associate, PhET Interactive Simulations, University of Colorado Boulder.  

Since 2002, the PhET Interactive Simulations Project  has developed over 125 simulations (sims) and studied the use of these sims for teaching and learning STEM topics, including physics, chemistry, and mathematics. PhET sims are interactive environments that emphasize conceptual learning, exploration, connections between content and real-world phenomena, and multiple representations. In this presentation, Hensberry will describe the PhET project, including goals for students and design principles. Hensberry will demonstrate how the design principles are used to create effective sims, discuss ways in which sims can be used with students and teachers, and present recent developments in new sim topics and research projects.
