In teaching electrochemistry, Materials Studio and VESTA softwares are used to assist the teaching of the structure of electrode materials and factors affecting the catalytic activity of catalysts, which makes the relevant teaching content easy to understand. This not only stimulates students' interest in the course of electrochemistry and improves the classroom teaching effect, but also helps to cultivate students' scientific thinking and exploration ability.

Key words: Computational simulation software, Electrochemistry teaching, Modeling, Fuel cell catalysis
