Kenneth D. Forbus

This essay describes a project in progress that is applying qualitative physics to create new kinds of educational software. We first outline why qualitative physics is an important technology for science education. One architecture we are developing, active illustrations, is described next. The rest of the paper describes our progress towards making this software available in schools.
