Dear Vladimir, I am quite impressed of STEP. Actually, when I was young 
and had loads of spare time, I started developping simulations myself: 
Did you think about adding simulations about
- gravity (planets surrounding a sun)
- stochastic/chaotic behavior (people at a cocktail party, opinions...)
- WATOR: Predator-Prey Simulation

More ideas could be found in some Java Applets out there:

As a teacher (not for physics though), I am interested in evaluating, 
localising, and promoting your STEP application.

Kind regards

P.S.: As for project names I regard it as plus if google will find the 
right page right away. From this point of view, Katomics is a better 
name than STEP or Kalzium (sorry, Carsten).
