EduKit is a software environment intended to help students learn about the different nuclear phenomena through a dynamical and graphical interaction. It is based on the ROOT framework and currently it is available only for Unix operating systems. In the near future, Windows users will also be able to install it. So far it includes four lessons: the Decay Law, Alpha Decay, Beta Decay and Nuclear Fission.
