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.
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.
Knowing how many individuals are in a population can be critical. How can you tell how many there are when there are too many to count? This model simulates a pond of tadpoles. The population size can be estimated in three ways: direct sampling, sampling with removal, and mark/recapture.
The NAAP Basic Coordinates and Seasons Lab is used to explore the motion of the Earth around the Sun and how it relates to seasons.
The NAAP Rotating Sky Lab introduces the horizon coordinate system and the “apparent” rotation of the sky. The relationship between the horizon and celestial equatorial coordinate systems is explicitly explored.
'Planets' is a web app created to help understanding the night sky. Unsurprisingly it's focused only on Solar System planets and our Moon.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.
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 allows, from one side to observe the relationship between the amount of energy that the battery will store and the luminosity of the bulb and the position of the solar panel regarding the bulb and from the other side it allows to meassure the amount of energy used from the ba
