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).
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.
Welcome to the GoLab Wind Energy Simulation. Take control of a wind farm to provide electricil energy to a small town. Understand how random changes - in wind speed and power requirement of the town - affect the use of this natural energy resource.
Get access to Earthquake data around the world!
Climate is regulated by the delicate balance of incoming and outgoing electromagnetic radiation. This applet first explores the climatic condition of various planets, focusing on Mars, Venus, and Earth.
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.
This animation illustrates the absorption of infrared radiation by CO2 in the troposphere and the collisional loss of this absorbed energy to surrounding N2 and O2 molecules. In this animation the user can sweep through a region of the IR spectrum and excite some of the vibrational modes of CO2.
In 1671 the french astronomer Richer travelled from Paris (latitude φ = 48.8°) to Cayenne (latitude φ = 4.9°) in French-Guyana. In Cayenne he observed that his pendulum clock, which he carried with him, showed a delay of about 2 min/day.
See the changing trends of temperature, carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide over hundreds of thousands of years as recorded from careful studies of ice core samples.
Solar Takeoff is a flight-simulator for solar airplanes in real weather conditions in form of races. This online-lab offers insight in many fields as mathematics, physics, meteorology, photovoltaics, aeronautics and programming for students from 16 to 18 years old.
