  • Wow Dec 4, 2019

    By Aerospace engineer student
    This app is definitely one of the coolest and more intuitive I have used. I am a Ph.D. student in Aerospace, and I usually help my siblings work their homework. This app is perfect to effectively and efficiently get an idea across. I am a native French speaker, and this app allows you to learn in different languages; definitely one of my favorite features. The app is also perfect for brushing up on stuff I have not seen in a while or for learning new material fast and easily. I am a visual learner and the simulation environment allows me to easily digest the material I am learning. I guess a picture is always better than a thousand words. I am able to quickly gain insight into a new field without having to do extensive literature reviews. I can have intelligible conversations with people whose studies are not related to mine. I think this app consciously helps me becoming a well-rounded scientist. Overall, I would totally recommend the PhET app if you need to clearly explain or learn some basic scientific concepts, regardless of the language you speak.

    It is the best app for simulation and learning but the reason i gave it 4 stars is that I use this in my Tab Lenova Tab 4 10 it used to work proprly but 1 week ago it was behaving abnormal and many simulations aren't opening only a few are opening I have also used mobile data and hotspot and wifi but still the same happened pls look at the problem. Otherwise i suggest it to all Science students its best to visualise all practicals.
  • Fantastic for teachers! Dec 9, 2019

    By Taylor Want
    I have loved PhET for years as a teacher—they’re the best tool I’ve found for teaching complex topics in a way that addresses the vast majority of learning needs in a classroom. The app is super easy to use, and runs perfectly for me. The sims are the perfect combination of fun and educational. It’s amazing to see learners with a wide range of strengths and struggles light up when they discover something new in a PhET simulation. As a former physics teacher, PhET sims are some of the most important tools in my teaching arsenal, and it’s useful to be able to use them on my phone, or to have students use them on their phones! I also love that the sims have been translated into many different languages, as it increases their accessibility to students with a variety of different native languages.

    I just purchased it. I have registered before and downloaded the HTML files individually. PhET simulations are way forward in making Teaching-Learning process exiting. I was thinking that we may have to pay more, but its so less really. Big Thank you to the PhET team. Hoping to see more of the Java version getting converted into HTML soon. God Bless the entire PhET team.

    It can be tricky as an educator to find high quality, hands-on, and interactive science and math resources for students that are also really easy to implement in the classroom. PhET sims have always been a reliable and wonderful educational tool that encourages kids to WANT to think critically and be challenged. They are also really fun and playful! I am so grateful that there is now an app that makes PhET sims even more accessible and available. Highly recommend to any teacher and anyone with kids!

    My device is Lg v40 and when I click on "Waves Intro" that app send me to the first selective page... But good to know you that I don't know how, but "waves Intro" working fine now. Please add more simulation I really like that...Thankyou.

    If you are at all interested in science, math, or chemistry this app is worth getting. It has a suite of simulations that keep the subjects fun and interesting. Each sim works like an exploratory tool that you get to play around with. Also the developers keep updating the sims and adding new ones, so that is cool. Would definitely recommend for students or parents looking to get their kids into science.

    It was really nice application. Very cheap. Me requesting to coloroda boulder (PHET) to please make biology simulation as early as possible.

    Hello, I am a student and was first introduced to PhET lab on a web browser for science and just got the app and it is better then on the web browser, on the app it is very easy to find simulations you liked because you can favorite them and then just have only favorites show, the app is definitely worth the 99 cents.
  • Invaluable App for Student Learning Feb 4, 2020

    By michelle🤓♥️🚀
    I normally use PhET simulations within my Nearpod presentations but downloaded the app specifically for my son in third grade. I love that we can access the math sims offline so he can practice on his device anytime. And I found out the app will translate (at least to Spanish) if you change the device language setting! 😱♥️🌎

    These are fantastic! PhET has been used in my classes for Earth Science, Chemistry, and even AP Chemistry for years, but app makes this extremely accessible, especially in the virtual setting where this can be a really powerful tool. The digital tools are simple to use, students find their use to be intuitive, and the cognitive load can be spent on the science rather than figuring out the program. Thank you for all you've done to create such a great learning tool!
  • Love it for my kids! Dec 13, 2019

    By PhET Mom
    This app has been great for my kids! The kids LOVE exploring all the simulations - playing with circuits, gases, atoms, prism, numbers, equations, and on and on. I LOVE that it is educational screentime! It’s so easy to use, and it even works on long trips when we don’t have internet. Overall, it’s been a go to app for us - for play or for school!

    Amazing concept (I've been using your website for a long time and went here to check out a new app as well), but it needs a bit of polishing. If I click "Info" button in simulation selection and then go back to list, I end up at the top of list. It would have been a nice feature to be able to select simulation language from within application, since going all the way to android settings is an overkill when you just want to see single simulation in another language, which is a somewhat common task for me.
