Interactive Science Models for Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Biotechnology and Nanotechnology

"The Molecular Workbench is an NSF (The National Science Foundation)-funded research project, that seeks to explore the educational value of having student solve problems using dynamic representations of linked micro and micro worlds."

Download the free Java modeler to run the simulations (download link), which will run on Windows, Mac or Linux operating systems.

Once the modeler is downloaded and installed, click on the Showcase link to download and interact with a variety of models.

Choose from:

  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Biotechnology
  • Nanotechnology
The screen shot on the left is an example of the simulation for the motion of Greenhouse Gases (found under Chemistry.)
