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).

If you are looking for online labs especially suitable for the curricula of Benin, Kenya or Nigeria, please visit our Collections page.

This is an updated version of an existing lab. It includes some theoretical background information and the lab which simulates MacArthur & Wilson's 1963 Island Biogeography Equilibrium paper.

In 1962, Rachel Carson published 'Silent Spring', which drew attention to how the use of pesticides was indirectly decimating bird populations by causing thinning of egg-shells.

This model is an agent-based population genetics simulation. The program contains the tools to conduct virtual experiments violating all the assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg theory (small population, selection, mutation, migration, and non-random mating).

This lab can be used to grasp the concepts of power generation in an osmotic power plant. It is based on a simple model which incorporates geographical parameters. Students can choose a location for their osmotic power plant and compare it to the prototype in Norway.

This applet models the relationship between atmospheric CO2 and average surface ocean pH.

This model simulates the classic example of natural selection on color patterns in peppered moths (Biston betularia). When air pollution is low, lichens cover the trees and the light moths are well camouflaged. When air pollution is high, the trees become dark and the light moths stand out.

Connell's 1961 classic competition experiment is modeled. You can explore the fundamental and realized niches of two species of barnacles, Chthamalus and Balanus. One species can grow at a wider range in depth but can be outcompeted, while the other species is limited to deeper rock.

Many animals are at risk of being eaten by other animals. Such an animal must balance food intake with predation risk. These models simulate Pulliam's (1973) vigilance model, which suggests that feeding in flocks is advantageous. Individual - Individual parameters can be adjusted.

This model simulates MacArthur & Wilson's 1963 Island Biogeography Equilibrium paper. You can run virtual experiments manipulating the following: island size, distance from mainland, habitat type, and species types (e.g. birds, arthropods, etc.).

This model simulates foraging behavior of honeybees. It is designed to illustrate Charnov's (1976) Marginal Value Theorem, which predicts how long an animal should forage in a given patch. The user can modify environmental conditions and the time-per-flower for two different bees.
