Molecular Workbench (MW) is a piece of free, open source modeling software specifically designed for use in education. Powered by a set of real time particle simulation engines that compute and visualize the motion of particles interacting through force fields, in both 2D and 3D, it is a simulation platform for learning science. Many abstract concepts in physics, chemistry, and biology can be dynamically visualized, and virtual experiments can be designed limited only by your imagination. MW provides an easy-to-use authoring system for creating simulation pages with customized interfaces. Novice users can operate this authoring system just like using a word processor. Macro languages are provided to advanced users for constructing and controlling models in a more flexible way. The customizability of models through the authoring system allows you to design user interfaces appropriate to your audience, without involving them in the complexity of the modeling engines.
