Science SIM Simulations. Sorry if that sounds a bit formal and a bit dull. In fact, Simulations are an exciting, different way of understanding and learning. And that’s what this site is all about – bringing you something different – a new way of getting to grips with the underlying concepts for various subjects. It could be History or Geography, Information Technology and more. However we have decided to start with Science. But, watch out – there’s more to come in the near future.
