|Physics Education Technology Project||For Students, Teachers and the General Public|
The Physics Education Technology project creates computer technology and supporting resources aimed at improving the learning and appreciation of physics for a wide range of students, teachers, and the general public. This technology is based on interactive java applications that automatically download and run on your home computer when you click on the appropriate link on the PhET website. These java applications allow users to explore phenomena and gain visual and conceptual models of the underlying physics principles and their relationships.
