The use of information and communication technologies in education for different school levels is becoming an usual practice. Concepts that many times are presented to the students from a static point of view are more easily apprehended when adequate technologies are used to give them greater dynamism.
Bearing in mind the real difficulties in the implementation of an experimental teaching of Physics, it is possible nowadays to present to the students activities inserted in a context of new technologies that encourage the experimentation and the sense of discovery, two essential teaching aspects of the Experimental Sciences.
The project “Topics of Physics in Virtual Experimentation” intends to promote the virtual experimentation in the classroom, through the exploration by the students of computational applications and the development of small investigation projects. All the materials will be available in the project site http://
