The growing interest in modeling superconductors has led to the development of increasingly effective numerical methods and software. Alongside this interest, the question of how to teach and to explain the operation of superconductors to students has arisen. EPFL and KIT have created a series of web applications based on COMSOL Multiphysics that are accessible through an open access web server called AURORA. This project allows users to dynamically change the parameters of the apps and observe their influence on the results, creating a vivid learning experience. The project is particularly directed to students. If, as Richard Feynman used to say ``the questions of the students are often the source of new research,'' why not stimulate students to ask questions on superconductivity?
