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).
A drawing-based learning environment for the gears domain. The primary aims of the lab are: Let students to explore the ways in which gears and chains transmit motion.
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.
Watch a string vibrate in slow motion. Wiggle the end of the string and make waves, or adjust the frequency and amplitude of an oscillator. Adjust the damping and tension. The end can be fixed, loose, or open.Primary aims of the lab:
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.
Learn how friction causes a material to heat up and melt. Rub two objects together and they heat up. When one reaches the melting temperature, particles break free as the material melts away. Primary aims of the labDescribe a model for friction a molecular level.
Make sparks fly with John Travoltage. Wiggle Johnnie's foot and he picks up charges from the carpet. Bring his hand close to the door knob and get rid of the excess charge.Sample Learning Goals
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.
Play with objects on a teeter totter to learn about balance. Test what you've learned by trying the Balance Challenge game. The primary aims of the lab are: 1) Predict how objects of various masses can be used to make a plank balance,
