I am wondering if there is a way to modify a PhET simulation to extend the functionality. For example, I would like to modify the PhET simulation https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/build-an-atom/latest/build-an-atom_en.html to include isotope symbols, binding energy data, and other isotope data and spectral lines for different numbers of electrons on ions.
I am wondering if there is a way to make these changes without making an entirely new PhET simulation for atoms.

Greetings!  The PhET simulations can be adapted and modified.  Some notes:

* Please be aware your changes must be compatible with the licensing rules (GPL)
* Please be aware the simulations are non-trivial and this work is time-consuming.
* You may also wish to look through the issues at https://github.com/phetsims/build-an-atom/issues and see if there are already proposals for what you envision.  Alternatively, you may wish to create a new issue describing the design of the proposal so the team is aware what you are envisioning and why it would be valuable.

Best Regards and Good Luck,
Sam
