The STEM Software applet page offers Java laboratory applets for the introductory astronomy teacher. These applets illustrate: the communication with extraterrestrial civilizations, radiative transfer, why the setting sun is red and the sky is blue, a random walk in two dimensions, binary star orbits, extra-solar planets, and the Doppler Shift. These applets provide a step-by-step instructional guide for students on how to use the various applets in a laboratory format.
