Launch Activity

This Activity Requires:

  • Java 1.4+ - Java 1.4+ is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X 10.3 and greater.
  • QuickTime for Java - Important Note: Due to a recent QuickTime update, you may not be able to see some models with embedded Flash components. We are currently trying to develop a workaround.

      Test your system to see if it meets the requirements

Important! If you cannot launch anything from this database, please follow the step-by-step instructions on the software page.

Please Note: Many models are linked to directly from within the database. When an activity employs our scripting language, Pedagogica, as do some of the "guided" activities, the initial download may take several minutes. Subsequent activities will not take a long time. See this page for further instructions.

Important Notice!

Due to a recent change in Quicktime, this activity will only work for computers using Quicktime version 6. We are working on fixing this problem, but it will take some time. Thank you for your patience.
