Grand Valley State University, Michigan Teaching and learning new and emerging technologies require state of the art laboratories equipped with expensive equipment. However, such facilities require large financial resources and time restraint to implement these facilities. Use of online simulation and remote access visualization tools enhance students learning and teaching of new and complex concepts without using expensive equipment. The proposed workshop will discuss application of Online simulation tools and remote access visualization (RAIN, Nanohub, Physicell, Phet, Compucell3D) for teaching, research and collaboration in the areas of nanotechnology, material science, environmental science, electrical engineering, biological sciences, physics, chemistry, photonics and other areas. The proposed workshop will discuss application of online simulation tools and remote access visualization for teaching, research and collaboration in the areas of nanotechnology, material science, environmental science, electrical engineering, biological sciences, physics, chemistry, photonics and more. These tools include 26 RAIN (Remote access Instruments in Nanotechnology) nodes for accessing visualization instruments; 500+ simulation tools at nanoHuB to simulate nanotechnology processes; interactive simulations at Phet Interactive Simulations for Physical sciences and math; and CompuCell3D and Physicell. Best practices and Simulation experiences at GVSU with X-ray characterization using XPS and XRD will also be presented.

Remote Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) is a network of 26 centers across continental US which allows students to access and control microscopes and analytical tools, to look at nanosized materials from the ease of classrooms, or home computers.

NanoHUB is an open and free platform, located at Purdue University, which runs in the cloud and contains more than 500 simulation tools and 6500 resources. It is a shared online platform for teachers, students and researchers which can be used to learn modeling, develop, run and share research models covering range of applications from nanoelectronics, to biological science and artificial intelligence to biological modeling.

CompuCell3D and PhysiCell, also available at nanoHUB platform, offer applications in multicellular simulation of viruses like Covid19. CompuCell3D is a flexible scriptable modeling environment, which allows the rapid construction of sharable virtual tissue models, accessible to users without extensive software development or programming experience.

PhysiCell is an open source, agent-based simulation framework for simulating complex multicellular systems. It aims to provide a scalable code for simulating at least 500,000 cells in 3-D tissue on desk top computer which move according to biomechanical forces and are not constrained by the lattice positions.

PhET Interactive Simulations platform, located at University of Colorado, provides a number of interactive simulations for Physics, Chemistry, Math, Environmental Sciences and Biological Sciences.
