Online labs provide your students with the possibility to conduct scientific experiments in an online environment. Remotely-operated labs (remote labs) offer an opportunity to experiment with real equipment from remote locations. Virtual labs simulate the scientific equipment. Data sets present data from already performed lab experiments. Please use the filters on the right to find appropriate online labs for your class. Labs can be combined with dedicated Apps to create Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs).
In the Electrical Circuit Lab students can create their own electrical circuits and do measurements on it. In the circuits the students can use resistors, light bulbs, switches, capacitors and coils. The circuits can be powered by a AC/DC power supply or batteries.
This lab allows the user to visualise the gravitational force that two objects exert on each other.
A drawing-based learning environment for the gears domain. The primary aims of the lab are: Let students to explore the ways in which gears and chains transmit motion.
In this lab, pupils can simulate the impact of an object (e.g., an asteroid) on the Earth, Moon or Mars. They can vary parameters such as the diameter, density and velocity of the projectile and see the characteristics of the resulting crater.
Build an atom out of protons, neutrons, and electrons, and see how the element, charge, and mass change. Then play a game to test your ideas!
You will see that there is a difference between reality and theory.
Students are asked to make predictions on how galaxies form and evolve in the Universe. They will use the ‘Galaxy Crash’ tool to simulate the evolution of 2 disc galaxies over time, and see if the results match their predictions.
This model simulates MacArthur & Wilson's 1963 Island Biogeography Equilibrium paper. You can run virtual experiments manipulating the following: island size, distance from mainland, habitat type, and species types (e.g. birds, arthropods, etc.).
The Radioactivity Lab examines the intensity of radiation over distance, demonstrating the effects of the inverse square law.
This virtual lab works as an interactive plot of 3D vectors. The user can observe how two vectors are related to their resultant, difference and cross product.
