High School Resource: Semiconductors by PhET

High School Resource Semiconductors by PhET This simulation will allow students to experiment with semiconductors and engage in doping them in a virtual setting. They will watch electrons change position and energy level. Using the simulation, students will: -Recognize that the battery is the driving force in a circuit. -Describe how n and p dopants […]

Middle School Resource: Battery-Resistor Circuit by PhET

Middle School Resource Battery-Resistor Circuit by PhET In this simulation, students will: -Look inside a resistor to see how it works. -Increase the battery voltage and more electrons flow though the resistor. -Increase the resistance to block the flow of electrons. -Watch the current and resistor temperature change. Related NY State Academic Standards: MST4.I.PS4.4, MST4.C.P.4.1 Be sure […]
