The molecular workbench offers highly interactive molecular dynamics simulations to help students learn difficult scientific concepts. The software demonstrates how scientists can transform research tools into educational tools. Research studies show that students learn better using computational models.
4 This paper describes part of a project called Modeling Across the Curriculum which is a large-scale research study in 15 schools across the United States. The specific data presented and discussed here in this paper is based on BioLogica, a hypermodel, interactive environment for learning genetics, which was implemented in multiple classes in eight high… (More)
