PhET Interactive Simulations Added to NCLOR
This resource series is a free and open collection made available by the PhET Interactive Simulations Project at the University of Colorado. This STEM related resource series was added to the NCLOR as a direct result of faculty interests according to last summers NCCCS faculty resource poll. The subject area Physics is the main focus of this series but other subjects included are Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science and Math.
The PhET is a National Science Foundation sponsored project and all of the simulations have been extensively researched and evaluated. They are written in Java and Flash, and can be run using a standard web browser as long as Flash and Java are installed. Each simulation in the series has a link to corresponding teacher contributed activities.
To access this resource series:
- log into the NCLOR < www.explorethelor.org > or through your institution’s learning management system (LMS)
