We Can Figure This Out.org
Virtual Lab: Electrostatics
University of Virginia
PROJECT OVERVIEW: This "Virtual Lab" website was developed by John C. Bean. It began under a grant from the National Science Foundation's CCLI program, and grew under subsequent NIRT, MRSEC and NUE awards. It has now been combined with Bean's Nanoscience and Sustainable Energy websites to form WeCanFigureThisOut.org (about / contact).
SOFTWARE TOOLS: The Virtual Lab's animations were created using the program "3D Studio MAX." The website is built upon PHP programming calling upon MySQL databases.
PAGE CREDITS: These pages on basic electrical circuits were developed at the Shenandoah Valley Governor’s High School (Fishersville VA) in collaboration with UVA. Students David Marbury, Sarah Caulkins, Tyler Walk, and Carter Santos worked on this page under the supervision of instructor Thomas O’Neill.
Since 2005, visitors to WeCanFigureThisOut.org websites have viewed 18,475,922 webpages and documents.
