New Improved Collision Lab

Collision Lab
We just published a new Collision Lab sim that includes improvements based on our research and teacher feedback. With the new Introduction tab, it’s now easier to explore one dimensional collisions. The Advanced Tab still offers full data collection and 2D collisions.

Another New Sim: Fluid Pressure and Flow

Fluid Pressure and Flow

We’re excited to publish another new simulation on fluid dynamics, Fluid Pressure and Flow. Explore pressure in the atmosphere and underwater. Reshape a pipe to see how it changes fluid flow speed. Experiment with a leaky water tower to see how the height and water level determine the water trajectory.

New Simulation: Under Pressure

Under Pressure

We’re excited to publish another new simulation, Under Pressure, where you can explore pressure under and above water. See how pressure changes as you change fluids, gravity, container shapes, and volume.
