Mad scientist

Educational freeware

We've been downlading some rather nice Windows programs from http://www.visualsimulations.co.uk/

Their freeware includes some science programs (most notably Atomscope, a simulator for some molecular processes including digestion, diffusion, etc. and Radiation Lab, which simulates radioactivity experiments), interactive whiteboard utilities, an on-screen stopwatch, etc. Best of all the programs are small by modern standards - under one megabyte for Atomscope, 4.5mb for Radiation lab, for example. Thoroughly recommended.
