Virtual Lab: Homepage
University of Virginia
             
PROJECT OVERVIEW: This "Virtual Lab" website was developed by John C. Bean. It began under a grant from the National Science Foundation's CCLI program, and grew under subsequent NIRT, MRSEC and NUE awards. It has now been combined with Bean's Nanoscience and Sustainable Energy websites to form WeCanFigureThisOut.org (about / contact).
SOFTWARE TOOLS: The Virtual Lab's animations were created using the program "3D Studio MAX." The website is built upon PHP programming calling upon MySQL databases.




The website was inspired by David Macaulay’s brilliant books on "The Way Things Work"





Since 2005, visitors to WeCanFigureThisOut.org websites have viewed 13,416,574 webpages and documents.
