Computer Simluations by NYU Steinhardt's Jan Plass, a Catalyst for Chemistry Learning for Urban and Rural High Schoolers


Plass’ research illustrated that students in both urban and rural settings with use of the simulations, led to better performance in chemistry compared to learning without simulations.

Thanks to Jan Plass, kinetic molecular theory can be as easy as making a cup of hot chocolate.

Following a four-year study of 357 rural students, 361 students in urban areas, in a total of 25 high school classrooms in New York City and rural Texas, Plass’ research found that well-designed computer simulations are an effective tool in boosting comprehension of chemistry sub 500
