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 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.
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.
The NAAP Rotating Sky Lab introduces the horizon coordinate system and the “apparent” rotation of the sky. The relationship between the horizon and celestial equatorial coordinate systems is explicitly explored.
The NAAP Basic Coordinates and Seasons Lab is used to explore the motion of the Earth around the Sun and how it relates to seasons.
Create your own shapes using colorful blocks and explore the relationship between perimeter and area. Compare the area and perimeter of two shapes side-by-side. Challenge yourself in the game screen to build shapes or find the area of funky figures. Try to collect lots of stars!
'Planets' is a web app created to help understanding the night sky. Unsurprisingly it's focused only on Solar System planets and our Moon.
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.
The VISIR system provides an extraordinarily flexible environment in which students can construct and test different circuits.
This lab allows, from one side to observe the relationship between the amount of energy that the battery will store and the luminosity of the bulb and the position of the solar panel regarding the bulb and from the other side it allows to meassure the amount of energy used from the ba
The WorldWide Telescope is a rich visualization environment that functions as a virtual telescope, bringing together imagery from the best ground- and space-based telescopes to enable seamless, guided explorations of the universe.
