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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
This data set presents the seismic activity around Cyprus, in the area of Mediterranean Sea. The tools provides information regarding the events by day and by magnitude.The user can set own variables.
This lab is designed to have students discover the relationship between the work that is done and the stretch of a spring. Students will get the area under a Force/Stretch graph to find the work given to a spring for a given situation.
