Design and create Physics Simulation Using Easy Java Simulation by Professor HWANG Fu-Kwun. 

http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php 
 
Title: Design and create Physics Simulation Using Easy Java Simulation
Speaker: Professor HWANG Fu-Kwun from the Department of Physics at National Taiwan Normal University, Taiwan.

Abstract of Talk:
How to design physics simulation for conceptual learning will be addressed. The talk will show currently available physics simulations freely available at NTNUJAVA web site. With Easy Java Simulation, a modelling tool which can be embedded in web page, users can view the physics model behind the simulation, modify existing models, or create a brand new model. The talk will also make some references to design features-ideas from computer models from an earlier morning workshop at River Valley High School and eduLab programme Java Simulations computer models by River Valley High, Yishun JC, Anderson JC, Innova JC, Serangoon JC and Educational Technology Division MOEHQ.
