There are various ways to apply the power of modern computers to the laboratory experience in chemical education. Some have tried to use them to simulate the experiments that would be done in the laboratory, on the theory that dangerous, expensive or even impossible experiments can be simulated. However, most chemical educators agree that no simulation can truly replace the hands-on experience of the student in the laboratory. Therefore, we have chosen to follow a different path, using the computer to enrich, prepare, and assist the students both in the laboratory and before they come to lab. The software being developed at NJIT is available to the students in the laboratory and from anywhere they can access the World Wide Web.
