Accesibilidad y PhET

El proyecto PhET está trabajando duro aumentando la accesibilidad de nuestras simulaciones. Aprenda más sobre nuestra investigación, diseño y desarrollo, y explore los prototipos de simulación accesibles a continuación.


¿No deberían todos los estudiantes experimentar la ciencia?

Students with disabilities can miss out on opportunities for authentic science and mathematics experiences due to a lack of accessible STEM resources. We believe this is a solvable problem.

Through inclusive design approaches, we are creating accessible interactive simulations that allow students to experience science and mathematical practices in new ways. In the process, we are tackling core challenges in software development, assistive technology, and science education.

Our accessible simulations include: verbal descriptions and feedback, the use of sound and music to represent foundational science and mathematics relationships, and alternative navigation that moves beyond mouse or touch inputs. We are creating research-based, accessible STEM education resources to ensure that all students can experience the benefits of PhET Interactive Simulations.
