This section contains materials produced for the NSF Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) -funded Phase 1 project, "Interdisciplinary Virtual Labs for Undergraduate Education in NSDL MatDL" (DUE-0632726). The code was produced for the project by Arthur Barnard and Colin Ashe.
All of the code on this site was developed using Java Se 5 and is included below. The virtual labs links contain all the standard files that might comprise a Java applet or application as well as a few extra things that are specific to Netbeans when appropriate.
If you are having difficulties viewing the applets, you can determine whether you have a compatible version of the Java Runtime Environment installed on your computer at the Java Tester site .
The virtual labs require that you have installed Java SE 5 or higher. If you need to download, you can find the latest version at Java SE Downloads. Please select Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) from the list of downloads.
Activities and Learning Modules:
The following are course materials designed for use in four different classes. For visitors not enrolled in one these classes, we recommend you view the CMU 09106 materials, since these are the most complete. (The other courses use subsets of these materials).
- UW-Madison Chem109 Virtual Labs
- KSU 40060 Virtual Labs
- KSU 11030 Virtual Labs
- MIT 3.091 Virtual Labs
- CMU 09106 VirtualLab

Particulate Level Simulations
This section contains materials produced for the NSF Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) -funded Phase 2 project, "Collaborative Research: Recurring Patterns in Molecular Science: Reusable Learning Resources" (DUE-0817493). The code was produced for the project by Colin Ashe, David Yaron, and Aaron Slodov.
All of the simulations in this section can be run in the Adobe Flash Player within your browser.
If you are having difficulties viewing the simulations, you can determine whether you have the Adobe Flash Player plug-in installed on your computer here. If you do not have the necessary plug-in installed, the page provides links to locations where it can be obtained and installed.
