About us

Furry Elephant is a family business based on the Isle of Man but has an impact on schools all over the world.

It was founded (gradually) by Julian Hamm, a physics teacher, in 2000 and has gained a reputation for an innovative approach to teaching and learning.

And it's teaching and learning that we're all about. What makes us different, we think is that we come up with interesting teaching ideas first and then write simulations and animations to support them, rather than writing a complex simulation and then adding some activities as an afterthought.

We constantly try to think of ways of making really crunchy ideas easily digestible.

We're quite proud that our Physics teaching products are used not just by students and teachers but also by teacher training institutions around the world to help support the next generation of teachers.
