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).
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!
How do you know if a chemical equation is balanced? What can you change to balance an equation? Play a game to test your ideas! Primary aims of the lab:
Explore what happens at the molecular level during a phase change. The three common physical states of matter (also called phases) are solid, liquid and gas. Matter can change phase with the addition or subtraction of heat. Molecules are always in motion.
Why does a balloon stick to your sweater? Rub a balloon on a sweater, then let go of the balloon and it flies over and sticks to the sweater. View the charges in the sweater, balloons, and the wall.
Create your own sandwich and then see how many sandwiches you can make with different amounts of ingredients. Do the same with chemical reactions. See how many products you can make with different amounts of reactants. The primary aims of the lab are:
Diffusion describes how particles of matter move through other liquids and gases (including air). Diffusion explains how the mass of particles and temperature are related to how quickly particles spread out over an area.
Phase Changes are changes of state, such as the change from liquid to gas, solid to liquid, or gas to liquid. When we heat particles, why are they able to change their state?
Do you ever wonder how a greenhouse gas affects the climate, or why the ozone layer is important? Use the sim to explore how light interacts with molecules in our atmosphere.
Explore molecule shapes by building molecules in 3D! Find out how a molecule's shape changes as you add atoms to a molecule.The primary aims of the lab are:1) Recognize that molecule shape is due to repulsions between atoms
How does solar radiation interact with the Earth and its atmosphere to cause global warming? Use this lab to see what’s going on at the molecular level.
