Department of Chemical Sciences, the University of Limerick, Eire:

“We had to design 5 undergraduate laboratory practicals as part of a new module: the Sim4t simulator is running perfectly within that lab – no problems whatsoever! It is very easy to use and is a very popular experiment with the students. Sim4t support were very helpful in getting us up and running initially with the software. We have subsequently managed to advance how we teach and connect with over 30 additional chemistry students to our existing lab cohort, per semester, using the Sim4t simulation software and thus, ultimately, improving teaching efficiency.”


School of Chemistry, University of Cork, Eire:

“We were looking for cost effective ways for advancing our practicals so the simulation experiments were ideal. Sim4t has been fantastic to deal with and extremely helpful.”
