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).
Kinetic Molecular Theory describes the behaviour of tiny gas particles, which are too small to be seen even with the strongest microscope. Kinetic means "motion," so the theory is all about particles moving!
Understanding the structure of the atmosphere is critical in understanding where and how global warming occurs. This visualization illustrates the major layers in the atmosphere and identifies a number of key characteristics and defining attributes of each layer.
Create your own shapes using colorful blocks and explore the relationship between perimeter and area. Compare the area and perimeter of two shapes side-by-side. Challenge yourself in the game screen to build shapes or find the area of funky figures. Try to collect lots of stars!
HYPATIA is an event analysis tool for data collected by the ATLAS experiment of the LHC at CERN.
'Planets' is a web app created to help understanding the night sky. Unsurprisingly it's focused only on Solar System planets and our Moon.
Explore how hydrophobic and hydrophilic interactions cause proteins to fold into specific shapes. Proteins, made up of amino acids, are used for many different purposes in the cell. The cell is an aqueous (water-filled) environment.
Explore how the code embedded in DNA is translated into a protein. The process of converting the information in DNA into protein is a two-step process, involving transcription and translation. In transcription, an mRNA copy is made of the DNA.
Garrett Hardin (1968) described how multiple individuals acting in their own interests, while exploiting a common resource, will inevitably overexploit the resource. This model illustrates the concept in a common field where four farmers are grazing cattle.
Learn about the physics of resistance in a wire. Change its resistivity, length, and area to see how they affect the wire's resistance. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change along with the diagram of a wire. Primary aims:
This model is an agent-based population genetics simulation. The program contains the tools to conduct virtual experiments violating all the assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg theory (small population, selection, mutation, migration, and non-random mating).
