Note: The app does not include PhET’s Java or Flash sims. In addition, although we are currently working on improving the accessibility of our sims, most of the sims included in this app do not include keyboard navigation or screen reader access. As accessible sims become available, they will be updated within the app.
Proceeds from the app support the development of more HTML5 sims. On behalf of the PhET team and the students whose lives you have helped improve — Thank you!
- Support for iPhones
- Updated user interface and filtering

Ratings and Reviews
A great new teaching resource
PhET have produced some excellent sims that I find really useful for enhancing my teaching and helping students visualise and understand concepts being taught. It looks like PhET have done a really doing job of making them easily accessible on a mobile device with this app.
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for your review! We are glad you are liking the mobile experience!
A must for developing children. Great app!
This app combines STEM based learning with simple and intuitive games and apps. Our 'iPad hungry' kids are loving this and as parents we are too. And it's only 99p.
Brilliant teaching and independent learning App. I use it right across the Physics curriculum KS3-5.
