Laser cooling and trapping have become widely used in the atomic physics laboratory. A computer program is presented that simulates some of the most important techniques employed, including atomic beam collimation, Zeeman slowing, funneling, and magneto-optical trapping. Its application ranges from experiment design to illustration of course material.
