Hi everyone. Today I started a campaign to support GNU FisicaLab, the educational free software for physics. GNU FisicaLab is an educational application for solving physics problems. This allows students focus in physics concepts when solving problems, leaving aside the mathematical details. FisicaLab has an extensive documentation, with a lot of examples, to help the student to familiarize quickly with the application.
Free software is important for education, to not enchain the students in using privative software packages. Using free software, schools and universities save money. But, most important, free software gives users the freedom to control their own computers. And encourages students to learn and share. They can make copies of the software to take home and to share with his friends. Read Why Schools Should Exclusively Use Free Software.
With your support, you will help to expand the range of problems to solve in FisicaLab, in adding new features, in the availability in other languages and in many other things. So help FisicaLab to reach 7k at March 31, to give students a chance of get an ethical education with free software.
Spread the word of FisicaLab’s campaign with your friends, blogs or social networks. Lets education become free (as in freedom).
