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... I am so grateful that there is now an app that makes PhET sims even more accessible and available.

PhET in different languages! The best app for science and math education out there! Love that all the translations are now available on the app!

I have taught Physics with PhET for years - their simulations make concepts clear. Now students and anyone interested can explore them in a neat app environment … The package will capture students' imagination and they'll investigate more topics than they came for!

FAQ

After requesting a license, PhET will publish a private version of the app to your Google Organization. Once published, your IT staff will need to follow our approval and distribution instructions to deploy the app to your school devices.

Google instructions for getting your Organization ID.

Yes! Google has been adding Android app support for a wide range of Chromebooks since 2016. This capability allows our app to run seamlessly on both Chromebooks and Android devices.

We’ll add a new license request link to this page at the beginning of each calendar year to support schools licensing the app for the following academic year. At that time you can adjust the number of licenses.

Chrome OS Systems Supporting Android Apps

No personally identifiable information is collected by PhET. The PhET Simulations Android app is meant to provide educational simulations to a wide audience. As we strive to collect the minimum amount of information needed to advance our educational mission, we have determined that there is no need for the collection of personal data within this app. Read the full privacy policy.

Both versions of our Chromebook app will match the language setting of the device. The app is supported in the following languages:

de
el
en
es
eu
fr
it
ko
nl
pl
pt_BR
sr
zh_CN
zh_TW

Setting the device to an unsupported language will display translated simulations in that language, but the app will fallback to the most similar language available.

iPads

FAQ

Managed Distribution: Assign apps to users or devices using a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, such as the latest version of Apple Profile Manager. You retain ownership of apps only, allowing you to revoke and reassign them as needed.

Redeemable Codes: Download a spreadsheet containing redeemable codes which you can then provide to your users. Ownership of the app or book is given to the Apple ID that redeems the code. Codes will only be redeemable in the U.S. store.
