At Scientific Monkey, we design educational software through state of the art simulation techniques. Our main goal is to make the physical behavior of our programs as realistic as possible to help students build intuition for problems that otherwise may require many years to master.
Our first educational program, Truss Me!, helps students all the way from middle school to college, to gain intuition on how truss structures behave, and more importantly, how they fail in a variety of loading scenarios.
