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 Faulkes Telescope Project provides access free-of-charge via the internet to robotic telescopes and a fully supported education programme to encourage teachers and students to engage in research-based science education.
Knowing how many individuals are in a population can be critical. How can you tell how many there are when there are too many to count? This model simulates a pond of tadpoles. The population size can be estimated in three ways: direct sampling, sampling with removal, and mark/recapture.
With this remote experiment students will understand the principle of objects floating and sinking in liquids, study the Archimedes Principle – displacement of liquids by floated objects, weight in liquids, buoyancy force.
What determines the concentration of a solution? Learn about the relationships between moles, liters, and molarity by adjusting the amount of solute and solution volume. Change solutes to compare different chemical compounds in water.
Star in a Box is an interactive webapp which animates stars with different starting masses as they change during their lives. Some stars live fast-paced, dramatic lives, others change very little for billions of years.
Explore the role of pore size in the diffusion of a substance across a membrane. Diffusion is the process of a substance spreading out from its origin. Molecules diffuse through random molecular motion.
This model simulates Endler's 1980 classic experiment on the balance of sexual selection and natural selection. In guppies, females prefer to mate with males that have lots of spots, but those males are more easily seen by predators.
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.
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.
From the theory is known that the energy which is radiated outward radically in three-dimensional space from a source is inversely proportional with the square of the distance from the source. This process is known as the Inverse square law.
