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 geodesic is a line representing the shortest route between two points. In simple terms, it might help to think of this as the route a crow (or aeroplane) would fly to get from one point to to another (ignoring any effects for wind).
The determination of the speed of light is always a challenge for accurate measurements, since Gallileo four hundred years ago supposed that light is travelling with a finite velocity.
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.
