Everything a Student Needs

To Conduct the Lab Component of a Traditional Physics Course

Realistic 3D Lab Equipment
and Data Collection Tools

Polyhedron Physics looks and works like the real thing.

"The Polyhedron virtual lab equipment and measuring tools allow students to make metacognitive choices about measurements that are not always available in virtual labs. Students can ask many of the same 'What would happen if...?' questions with this equipment as they could in a live lab. Also, they allow for minimal changes in my curriculum should we need to pivot completely to online delivery. One can consider these as a digital extension of the regular stockroom."

—Melissa Vigil, Laboratory Supervisor, Department of Physics, Marquette University

Comprehensive

Each simulation contains everything a student needs to conduct virtual physics experiments in:

  • Kinematics and Dynamics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Electricity
  • Light and Sound

With more than 60 simulations, Polyhedron Physics can easily cover an entire year of physics labs.

Realistic

3D simulated laboratory equipment and data collection tools that look and function like an actual hands-on lab. Experimental data includes realistic variability, allowing students to use standard data analysis and error analysis techniques.

Flexible

Easy and convenient access — anywhere, anytime makes Polyhedron Physics an ideal option when remote learning is desirable or essential.

Economical

Virtual simulations are a cost-saving option for secondary and post-secondary learning, eliminates the need for expensive lab equipment and time consuming equipment set-up.
