Now Available: DVD Installer with Teaching Activities

Now you can create your own CD or DVD for the full PhET installation (with or without teaching activities) on computers that don’t have internet access. To create your installer disks, you’ll need a computer equipped with a CD/DVD writer, a blank disk and an internet connection. Remember to periodically check for updated versions of the PhET simulations to keep your sims most up to date.
