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).
You will see that there is a difference between reality and theory.
There is an updated version of this lab. This simulation demonstrates the influence of temperature, light intensity, and CO2 on photosynthesis.
'Planets' is a web app created to help understanding the night sky. Unsurprisingly it's focused only on Solar System planets and our Moon.
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.
This lab allow the user to study how the eolic energy can be used in order to generate another type of enegry, in this case electrical energy which can then be used. There are several parameters that the user will be able to modify in order to experiment with this energy.
The NAAP Lunar Phases Lab demonstrates how the earth-sun-moon geometry gives rise to the phases of the moon as seen from earth. A distant view of an observer looking down on earth as well as a perspective of an observer looking into the sky are used in the the simulator.
Sun 4 all is a set of experiences using the repository of Solar Images taken by the Observatory of Coimbra since 1926. There are 30 000 spectroheliograms.
This data set allows teh user to calculate the position and height of the sun anywhere in the world on any date and plot the shadow cast by the sun at different times of the day.
SunCalc is a little app that shows sun movement and sunlight phases during the given day at the given location.
