The Molecular Workbench

Molecular Workbench (MW) provides visual, interactive computational experiments for teaching and learning science. MW is not just a collection of simulations—do not be deceived by first glance. While it presents many existing simulations that are ready to use in the classroom, it is, however, also a modeling tool for teachers and students to create their own simulations and share them with collaborators. There are very sophisticated modeling capacities hidden behind its simple user interface that empower you to create new simulations and even explore the unknowns. (Because of the experimental and computational nature of this kind of simulations, we prefer to call them computational experiments.)
