Aerospace engineer student

This app is definitely one of the coolest and more intuitive I have used. I am a Ph.D. student in Aerospace, and I usually help my siblings work their homework. This app is perfect to effectively and efficiently get an idea across. I am a native French speaker, and this app allows you to learn in different languages; definitely one of my favorite features. The app is also perfect for brushing up on stuff I have not seen in a while or for learning new material fast and easily. I am a visual learner and the simulation environment allows me to easily digest the material I am learning. I guess a picture is always better than a thousand words. I am able to quickly gain insight into a new field without having to do extensive literature reviews. I can have intelligible conversations with people whose studies are not related to mine. I think this app consciously helps me becoming a well-rounded scientist. Overall, I would totally recommend the PhET app if you need to clearly explain or learn some basic scientific concepts, regardless of the language you speak.

I have loved PhET for years as a teacher—they’re the best tool I’ve found for teaching complex topics in a way that addresses the vast majority of learning needs in a classroom. The app is super easy to use, and runs perfectly for me. The sims are the perfect combination of fun and educational. It’s amazing to see learners with a wide range of strengths and struggles light up when they discover something new in a PhET simulation. As a former physics teacher, PhET sims are some of the most important tools in my teaching arsenal, and it’s useful to be able to use them on my phone, or to have students use them on their phones! I also love that the sims have been translated into many different languages, as it increases their accessibility to students with a variety of different native languages.

Science is Gneiss

It can be tricky as an educator to find high quality, hands-on, and interactive science and math resources for students that are also really easy to implement in the classroom. PhET sims have always been a reliable and wonderful educational tool that encourages kids to WANT to think critically and be challenged. They are also really fun and playful! I am so grateful that there is now an app that makes PhET sims even more accessible and available. Highly recommend to any teacher and anyone with kids!

If you are at all interested in science, math, or chemistry this app is worth getting. It has a suite of simulations that keep the subjects fun and interesting. Each sim works like an exploratory tool that you get to play around with. Also the developers keep updating the sims and adding new ones, so that is cool. Would definitely recommend for students or parents looking to get their kids into science.

This app has been great for my kids! The kids LOVE exploring all the simulations - playing with circuits, gases, atoms, prism, numbers, equations, and on and on. I LOVE that it is educational screentime! It’s so easy to use, and it even works on long trips when we don’t have internet. Overall, it’s been a go to app for us - for play or for school!

As accessible sims become available, they will be updated within the app.
