"If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next generations of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words? I believe it is the atomic hypothesis (or the atomic fact, or whatever you wish to call it) that all things are made of atoms---little particles that move around in perpetual motion, attracting each other when they are a little distance apart, but repelling upon being squeezed into one another''.

- Richard Feynman

Molecular Dynamics '11
Summer Workshop

What's Coming
in VMDL 2?


The Virtual Molecular Dynamics Laboratory enables the student to visualize atomic motion, manipulate atomic interactions, and quantitatively investigate the resulting macroscopic properties of biological, chemical, and physical systems.

The Virtual Laboratory is a suite of research-based molecular dynamics software tools and project-based curriculum guides. The software tools are: ``Simple Molecular Dynamics (SMD)'', ``Universal Molecular Dynamics'', and ``Water''.

Would you like to utilize The Virtual Molecular Dynamics Laboratory in your classroom? Please visit our workshop page.
