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).
This virtual lab works as an interactive plot of 3D vectors. The user can observe how two vectors are related to their resultant, difference and cross product.
The Simple Harmonic Oscillator JS Model displays the dynamics of a ball attached to an ideal spring. The spring is initially stretched and the ball has zero initial velocity. The initial position of the ball can be changed by click-dragging the ball when the simulation is paused.
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.
The NAAP Extrasolar Planets Lab introduces the radial velocities of singular planetary systems and introduces the concept of noise and detection.
The NAAP Eclipsing Binary Stars Lab demonstrates how information about stars which can not be directly observed can be inferred from a special class of binary stars – eclipsing binaries.
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.
The NAAP Extrasolar Planets Lab introduces the search for planets outside of our solar system using the Doppler and transit methods.
SunCalc is a little app that shows sun movement and sunlight phases during the given day at the given location.
Consider the following questions based on your experience of rooms you have been in. Does a low ceiling make a room feel warmer in a poorly insulated house? Would it be hard to heat the area we use (such as sofa height) of a living room with a high “cathedral” ceiling?
