Default Science Week...

Hi,
We have a whole school science week rapidly approaching, and I had in mind taking classes (aged say 6 to 10) into the computer room (running Feisty as thin clients) and doing something with some scientific relevance - any recommendations for either tasks or software?

Something I'd really like is a ubuntu version of MS's Physics Illustrator (http://blog.hypercubed.com/archives/2006/02/05/how-to-use-physics-illistrator-on-non-tablet-pc/ qv http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7eGypGOlOc), anyone tried this under mono?

Many thanks,
Miles.

Default Science Week...

Hi Miles,Gavin posted this a while ago, it's very impressive as a physics demo... *The first 6 are free, see below...Steve.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hi,

in case anyone is interested, the virtual physics laboratory is
Windows-based physics simulation software for education:

http://vplab.co.uk/

It seems at the moment to be strictly for windows, but it runs pretty well
in WINE on ubuntu gutsy (possibly other versions too?).

sudo apt-get install wine msttcorefonts
mkdir vpl
cd vpl
wget*http://www.colpus.me.uk/vplab/download/VPLabSampleFolder.zip
unzip VPLabSampleFolder.zip
wine Balance.exe

It seems you can get those 6 sample simulations for free but there are over
160 in the full set which can be purchased from the website above. *They
might be quite nice to get working on thin clients.

Gavin
