My department is purchasing simulation software for use in the computer lab. Our desire is not to replace hands on activities as we fully believe in these. Rather, it is to give quality practice and exposure to our students in dissection, microbiology, forensics, genetics, and other areas. I also hope to acquire ecology and population simulation software. While we do have exposure to a variety of vendors and their products, we are very interested in hearing from anyone who has had successful (or negative) experiences with products that we can investigate.
