SimScience: Interactive educational modules based on large simulations.Four groups for four modules:- Membranes (SU Physics)- Fluid Flow (SU Engineering)- Crack Propagation (Cornell Engineering)- Crackling Noise (Cornell Physics) Crackling Noise, perhaps most coherent module at Advanced Level. Tries to link everyday ideas to various physical concepts and ultimately to research work on magnetization - the noise is in the flipping of domains. Membranes module is born out of work on random surfaces and quantum gravity - neither of these subjects seem worthy of lengthy explanation at school level. Instead we have focussed on the general idea of surfaces and membranes, in particular of soaps and in biology. Toward the end of the module we link with gravity.
