Physics SimulatorJanuary 17, 2008 at 8:31 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment
My friends at Best Science Lesson Ever have pointed me in the direction of this amazing physics simulator, from MIT. The science animations illustrated here are of more interest to Secondary schools, whereas Moovl takes a simpler approach more appropriate for Primary schools, but many of the underlying principles (the ability to quickly draw objects, assign physical properties and then make them interact) are the same.
The program is called “Assist Sketch Understanding System and Operation”. Unfortunately, according to the notes, you can’t buy or download the software. The demo, however is enticing!
