What is PhET? • PhET stands for Physics Education Technology • Provides fun, interactive, research-based simulation of physical phenomena for free • PhET simulations animate what is invisible to the naked eye through use of graphics and intuitive controls • Simulations also offer measurement instruments including rulers, stop watches etc.

  3. PhET • All simulations are freely available from PhET website • Easy to use and incorporate into the classroom
