Quantum Simulations, Inc. develops artificial intelligence tutoring, assessment and professional development software that empowers teachers and inspires students, from middle school through college, to improve their knowledge and appreciation for the sciences. Despite clearly articulated teacher and student demand for improvement of chemistry education software, this area has been repeatedly identified as one where existing offerings are weakest. Quantum Simulations adapts and incorporates new concepts from artificial intelligence for its tutoring tools. More than just assigning a grade, meaningful opportunities are created for students to learn directly from the assessment itself.

The proposed technology will benefit all students.  However, it is specifically targeted to help those who have the greatest need--such as students of average or marginal performance and students from historically underserved groups--by lowering barriers to accessing high-quality science instructional software. Quantum Simulations has partnered with education stakeholders such as members of the Department of Education's STAR Schools program, textbook publishers, software providers, hardware vendors, and distance learning companies.
