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 Basic Coordinates and Seasons Lab is used to explore the motion of the Earth around the Sun and how it relates to seasons.
CERNland contains games on all topics related to the CERN activity. It is the virtual theme park developed to bring the excitement of CERN's research to a young audience aged between 7 and 12.
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.
Kinetic Molecular Theory describes the behaviour of tiny gas particles, which are too small to be seen even with the strongest microscope. Kinetic means "motion," so the theory is all about particles moving!
This lab allow the user to study how the eolic energy can be used in order to generate another type of enegry, in this case electrical energy which can then be used. There are several parameters that the user will be able to modify in order to experiment with this energy.
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 HR Diagram Lab explores the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram and those areas necessary to understand the diagram such as (but not limited to) the different kinds of spectrum, spectral classification, and luminosity class.
The Gas Laws bring together temperature, volume and pressure and help us to see how these factors are related.
Garrett Hardin (1968) described how multiple individuals acting in their own interests, while exploiting a common resource, will inevitably overexploit the resource. This model illustrates the concept in a common field where four farmers are grazing cattle.
Explore how the code embedded in DNA is translated into a protein. The process of converting the information in DNA into protein is a two-step process, involving transcription and translation. In transcription, an mRNA copy is made of the DNA.
