Storyline: PhET Interactive Simulations project ( at the University of Colorado Boulder creates free interactive simulations and virtual labs for science and math learning. PhET simulations are teaching tools that can support conceptual learning and skill development, but they are most effective when used in a teaching context that makes use of evidence-based, student-centered teaching and learning practices. During the side event, participants will learn about PhET simulations as well as how PhET’s Global Initiative provides support to teachers and educational systems on how to use PhET’s suggested strategies to promote active learning.
