The University of Colorado's Physics Education Technology (PhET) website offers free, high-quality simulations of many physics experiments that can be used in the classroom. The Circuit Construction Kit, for example, allows students to safely and constructively play with circuit components while learning the mathematics behind many circuit problems. This article describes the author's experience using the Circuit Construction Kit with his 11th- through 12th-grade physics students. (Contains 1 online resource.)
