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 them.

Troubleshooting

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.

Case Study

"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!"
