About the TEAL/Studio Physics Project:

The TEAL (Technology Enabled Active Learning) Studio Project is an educational initiative of the MIT Department of Physics. It represents a merger of lecture, recitations, and hands-on laboratory experience into a technologically and collaboratively rich experience for incoming MIT freshmen. A large part of this effort is the development of software for simulation and visualization. This and additional material will appear on MIT's OpenCourseWare site by the Spring of 2004 (
