Seeking simple design program

    I am looking for a new electronics design program with a graphical
    interface that would be suitable for high school students.
    The program needs to be quite simple as these students have never seen
    circuits before. Power supplies, resistors, caps, inductors, meters
    are the idea.
    In past years we have used electronics workbench, but this program has
    been updated to a program too complicated for my students, and the old
    version will not run on our new servers.

    Any ideas for programs would be welcome.

    Please respond to my email, since I do not get a chance to read this
    group very offen

    Thank you for your time.

    maybe LTspice?

  3. Well..I consider my SuperSpice to the easiest spice program in the
    universe to use.

    I will note that "meters" in spice programs are a cumbersome and not
    very useful. Simply moving test points to pins and wires on a schematic
    to probe currents and voltages is far easier than wiring up ammeters and

    I use CircuitMaker, which I find about the most intuitive I've tried.
    There is a limited student version.

    Are you suggesting the OP is a "limited student"?
