Teach Electronics With Croc Clips
Crocodile Clips 2.0 is an educational software package for teaching electricity and electronics to 11-18 year old pupils. It enables students to draw their own circuits and watch them spring into life on screen.
The program is a real-time circuit simulator that bypasses the traditional methods of using circuit boards in the laboratory, which can be a slow and troublesome process. Its simple onscreen controls, animation features and user-friendliness have been widely acclaimed by schools and educational advisors. It comes with a clear User Guide, as well as worksheets. There is also an online help feature based on the User Guide.
Crocodile Clips 2.0 (Windows/Mac) has licensed users in schools all over the world including the U.K., U.S., France, Holland, Scandinavia and the Far East. French and German language versions are available and other versions will follow. Arbor Scientific, Ann Arbor, MI, (800) 367-6695, www.crocodile-clips.com/ education/.
