The MicroWorlds Plugin
What is it?
The projects that you create using MicroWorlds EX and Microworlds JR (Mac and Windows) can be saved in a "special way" so they can be viewed on the Web, using popular Internet browsers.
The MicroWorlds Plugin allows you to view MicroWorlds projects
inside the most popular Internet browsers, whether or not you own a
copy of MicroWorlds. You need the MicroWorlds Plugin if:
- You do not own a copy of MicroWorlds and you would like to
look at some MicroWorlds projects that have been posted on the Web
by MicroWorlds users;
- You own a copy of MicroWorlds, you are creating projects to be
posted on the Web and you would like to test them before posting
You can use the Plugin to view projects made with MicroWorlds EX or MicroWorlds JR. The browsers that the Plugin supports are: Safari and Firefox.

If you encounter web pages with MicroWorlds projects that show but do not
function well, the problem is probably with the design of the project itself. If
some MicroWorlds projects do not show at all on the web pages you are looking
at, please go to LCSI Support and click on Technical Support.
"At Immanuel Lutheran School we use MicroWorlds starting in second grade
and all the way through eighth grade. In our lab we display some of the
MicroWorlds projects that students do year after year, for example in
sixth grade every year the students create a polygon project, the end
result of which is a drawing of something created entirely out of
polygons which were all programmed with one polygon routine with three
variables - for turn angle, size, and number of sides. The drawings are
very impressive and excite the younger students, so one year we added an
angle project in fifth grade. Then a couple of years ago the fourth
graders asked when they got to do something cool like that, so we
created another angle project for them!"
