Tour our vision for the "Teach with PhET" website:

We are excited to have completed the design phase for the "Teach with PhET" website! Thanks to Theresa Niel Strategy and Design for their excellent work and to all the teachers who participated in the planning and review stages of this project.

The "Teach with PhET" website is designed just for educators like you, providing quick and easy access to the resources, support, and community you need to get started with, or extend, your use of PhET in the classroom! You will be able to:

  • Easily find relevant simulations and activities
  • Access research-based strategies, video guides, and exemplars for teaching with PhET
  • See teacher recommendations and read reviews
  • Bookmark, tag and organize your resources in "My PhET"
  • Share ideas and learn from other teachers
  • And more ...

We want to turn this vision into a reality:
