In this research a learning path in physics computer modelling is being designed for pre-university students in the Netherlands. Research is conducted on the modeling competences required by students. Materials will be developed that allows students to conduct physics research using computer models and therefore investigate physical phenomena, thereby increasing their insight and knowledge about physics, together with the nature of science.

This research is funded by NRO, the National Education Research Organisation.
