Each Simulation Pack in the list below contains the following:
A video snippet that explains basic concepts of the concerned topic, and touches upon operational controls of the simulation
One or more Interactive 3D simulations
Assessment questions (MCQs)
Objective is to understand how sound travels in different medium. A sound producing device is used that sends out a beep every second. Watch how sound waves travel in Air. When sound is sucked out of a bell jar containing the sound device, watch what happens to the volume of sound. Does sound propagate in vacuum ? Compare speed of Sound waves in air with that in water and in a solid steel rod.
Objective is to demonstrate how light bends (due to refraction or reflection) when it travels from medium to another. Explore what happens when light moves from rarer to denser medium, and vice-versa. Understand when does refraction take place, versus total internal reflection. Snell's law comes in handy to understand the concept of bending of light. Additionally learn how a change of medium causes an impact to bending of light. Concept of refractive index is elucidated. Watch what happens to the angle of refraction when medium is changed.
Objective here is to help understand the forces acting on an object traveling in a circular motion. A common real life example is taken to depict this scenario. A person standing on a merry-go-round without any support, tries to balance himself in the ride. A curious mind will wonder what causes such a person to slip and fall away from the ride due to various forces acting on him.
Objective here is to show the workings of a DC motor, and explain what makes a coil to rotate, as well as change its speed. Fleming’s Left Hand is used to explain the direction of motion of the coil, in conjunction with force acting upon the coil. A user is allowed to “play with” the DC motor parts and understand the impact of changes they make to those parts.
Understand different types of wavefronts. Plain and circular wavefronts are demonstrated in a water body. Demonstrate diffraction of water waves while passing through a narrow gap. Width of gap can be changed to see the impact on diffraction.
Set off earthquakes with varying intensities and watch how P-Wave and S-Wave travel across earth's layers. Also witness the impact of higher intensities (Richter) of earthquakes on buildings on the surface of earth. Understand the importance of Hypocenter and Epicenter, and how they relate to earthquake intensities.
Objective here is to help a user explain (or understand) the difference between conventional direction of current versus direction of flow of electrons in a conductor. Students also get to understand why the brightness of a bulb changes when we change an external resistor in the circuit. Interactive aspects include ability to change the conductor, and resistors to see the impact of those changes in the circuit.
Bringing Electricity and Chemistry together always produces excitement. Perform various types of experiments in Electrolysis and Electroplating to understand movement of ions during the process and the end results.
Demonstrate formation of convex and concave lenses. Explore what happens to objects when placed at different positions in front of the lens. Maneuver the lens, object and screen yourselves to understand image formation under various circumstances.
Measure pressure in gases and liquids using a manometer. This simulation allows a user to explore how pressure changes in liquids due to change in density or depth. A can crusher experiment is used to demonstrate pressure changes in case of gases.

Ever wondered how much a mole of common salt really weighs ? Or for that matter what is a volume of 3 moles of the Oxygen we breathe. This simulation allows you to play with various elements and compounds and interpret them in mole, mass and volume.
Demonstrate impact of terminal velocity using a real-life example of a sky-diver jumping off a plane. Determination of terminal velocities before and after opening of a parachute are the highlights of this experiment
Plot Speed versus Time and Speed versus Distance graphs as a car is driven through various types of ideal and real-life driving conditions. Concept of ETA (estimated time of arrival) is also elucidated on this simulation
Play with acids and bases in a safe environment. No worrying about accidents or hurting yourselves. Get up, close and personal with a variety of acids, bases and salts to understand their chemical properties.
How are elements getting held together to form compounds ? Create bonds and find out for yourselves !! This simulation allows you to create bonds for elements and compounds commonly used in our daily lives.
Balancing chemical equations can indeed be fun, if you switch on the play mode On ! Set off various types of chmical reactions and balance the corresponding chemical equations, in this fun-filled simulation.
If you ever thought a farmer's job is easy, give it a shot yourselves. Perform all the processes from soil preparation through to harvesting. Your job as a farmer is to ensure a healthy and optimal crop production. Game On !!
Push a heavy box on different types of surfaces to get a feel of strong frictional forces. Understand how oil and grease can help you overcome friction. If you thought friction exist only on solid surfaces, think again. We take you to a lake to find out what friction means in water. And we let you get a feel of air drag for objects experiencing a free fall.
Mirror mirror on the wall - who's the smartest of 'em all !! Understand properties of plane and spherical mirrors, and apply them in real life situations. Check out what happens if you used a convex or a concave mirror on your dessing table mirror
This simulation deals with chemical behavior of alkanes and alkenes. Dive into bio-technology and carboxylic acids. Focus is on practical applications and enviromental impacts related to these compounds
Split white light into 7 colors, and and reassemble them to form white light again !! Welcome to the wonderful world of prisms. Refract light under various conditions, including that when your prism is immersed in a liquid. Change the shape of your prism as well and check out the impacts of doing so.
Hear your voice rebound or reverberate. We take you on a journey to the mountains where play creator. Summon up mountains, grow trees and yell. Will you hear your voice rebound ? You also get to yell in a concert hall to understand the wonderful effects of reverberation Lastly - we put you on a mission to identify enemy submarines from a warship, using SONAR.
How loud can you scream ? How sharp is your pitch ? Lets get people screaming to understand properties of sound and the waves it produces. Get an elephant to rumble and watch the sound waves travel miles away.
