Models of Others

Atomsmith
http://www.bitwixt.com/
A molecule dynamic software package developed by David Doherty, a computer/chemical physicist sort who used to develop Cray-based molecular dynamic programs. Costs.

Gizmos
http://www.explorelearning.com
"modular, interactive tools/simulations in math and science for teachers and students in grades 6-12" Professional graphics in service of clear learning objects. A few free, but most you pay for. Includes assessment and real-time reporting, link to standards. 400 + models. Costs. 30-day trial.

Institute for Science Education
http://ice.chem.wisc.edu/catalogitems/ScienceKits.htm
While we are emphasizing software modeling solutions, we cannot resist drawing your attention to these physical models, which are ingenious and target core science of the frontier.

Interactive Physics
http://www.knowplay.com/science/interactive-physics.html
A modeling environment for physics. "You can study what-if scenarios and create nearly any simulation imaginable." Some web sites contain collections of their simulations, e.g. http://www.csupomona.edu/%7Eajm/ip.html Costs.

Net Logo
http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo
"NetLogo is a programmable modeling environment for simulating natural and social phenomena. It is particularly well suited for modeling complex systems developing over time." The site contains a set of macro-scale simulations in its Models Library. Free.

PhET
http://phet.colorado.edu/web-pages/simulations-base.html
" Our goal is to advance physics education by advancing the effectiveness of learning materials, to produce those learning materials, and to understand why they work. " The site contains a numerous physics and chemistry simulations. Free.

Simulations - University of Colorado
http://www.colorado.edu/physics/phet/simulations-base.html
A web site with Java and Flash based models covering items across the physics curriculum. These interactive models allow users to explore both macro and micro level phenomena. Free.

Star Logo at the Media Lab of M.I.T.
http://education.mit.edu/starlogo/starterpage.html
"StarLogo is a specialized version of the Logo programming language. With traditional versions of Logo, you can create drawings and animations by giving commands to graphic "turtles" on the computer screen. StarLogo extends this idea by allowing you to control thousands of graphic turtles in parallel." Free.
