Hands-on Easy Java Simulations

University of Cape Town Physics Department Event
Sep 05, 2012 - Sep 06, 2012 in Cape Town, South Africa

A hands-on workshop that introduces participants to the open-source Easy Java Simulations (EJS) authoring toolkit. It is organized by Spencer Wheaton of the University of Cape Town, Department of Physics. Participants will be taken through the basics of EJS, using models on the ComPADRE website as illustrative examples. Specific emphasis will be placed on simulation design and how best to encourage student engagement with simulations. The ideas will be applied on the second morning, when participants will construct their own EJS authored models.
