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).
Make a whole rainbow by mixing red, green, and blue light. Change the wavelength of a monochromatic beam or filter white light. View the light as a solid beam, or see the individual photons.Aims of the lab:
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.
The Our Acidifying Ocean lab explores the chemistry of ocean acidification and its impacts on sea urchin larvae through interactive models, a virtual lab bench, and a microscope measurement tool. The primary aims of the lab are: Our virtual labs and activities serve many purposes.
Explore pressure under and above water. See how pressure changes as you change fluids, gravity, container shapes, and volume. Primary aims of the lab:Investigate how pressure changes in air and water.Discover how you can change pressure.
See how the equation form of Ohm's law relates to a simple circuit. Adjust the voltage and resistance, and see the current change according to Ohm's law. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change to match the circuit diagram. Sample Learning Goals
This lab aims at helping students visualise Kepler's Second Law using true examples. Starting from acquired data from NASA on moving bodies in space: a satellite, a comet, and a moon; the lab plots their respective trajectories in 2D (x-y representation).
This model is a simulation which draws upon Gauss' (1934) classic experiments with protists. In this virtual petri dish, you can add bacteria, two species of Paramecium, and a predator. The two Paramecium (P. aurelia & P. bursaria) species compete for resources.
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
The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.
The NAAP Habitable Zones Lab introduces the basic conditions thought necessary for life to exist, and explores where in the universe those conditions are most likely to be met.
