  Abstract: Easy Java Simulations (EJS) is a free, open-source tool for creating interactive computer simulations. This summer (June 2011) I will be using EJS to teach 9th and 10th graders to create computer simulations in a week-long (summer science camp) course. Will we succeed? What will they create? Come find out! During the past year I have also used EJS for teaching multiple undergraduate courses in computational physics, so I will address the specific challenges and opportunities that arose when teaching high school students versus college students.
