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 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.
There is an updated version of this lab. This simulation demonstrates the influence of temperature, light intensity, and CO2 on photosynthesis.
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 changing the DNA sequence can change the amino acid sequence of a protein. Proteins are composed of long strings of amino acids. Proteins are coded for in the DNA. DNA is composed of four different types of nucleotides.
The microscope base contains samples of stem, root, fruit, seed, flower and leaf. The user can switch between samples, and more details about the the part of the plant chosen are shown.
Observe and interact with microscopic organism in real time.
Explore the role of permeable membrane in diffusion. Diffusion is the process of a substance spreading out from its origin. Molecules diffuse through random molecular motion.
This lab is an abridged Html5 version of the Flash-based Photolab. It has been optimized to work with tablet computers.
Students working at a distance in two different ILSs share a simulation similar to the Rate of Photosynthesis Lab, but are able to control only one of two variables (lamp intensity or the season of the year).
