Abstract:The use of haptics is growing in the area of science education. Haptics appears to convey information to students in a manner that influences their learning and ways of thinking. This document outlines examples of how haptics has been employed in science education contexts and gives a more detailed description of an education oriented evaluation of a haptic protein-ligand docking system. In molecular life science; students need to grasp several complex concepts to understand molecular interactions. Research on how haptics influences students’ learning show strong positive affective responses and; in the protein-ligand docking case; that reasoning with respect to molecular processes is altered. However; since many implications of using haptics in education are still unknown; more research is needed.
