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).
'Planets' is a web app created to help understanding the night sky. Unsurprisingly it's focused only on Solar System planets and our Moon.
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!
Explore how hydrophobic and hydrophilic interactions cause proteins to fold into specific shapes. Proteins, made up of amino acids, are used for many different purposes in the cell. The cell is an aqueous (water-filled) environment.
The Gas Laws bring together temperature, volume and pressure and help us to see how these factors are related.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Learn about the physics of resistance in a wire. Change its resistivity, length, and area to see how they affect the wire's resistance. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change along with the diagram of a wire. Primary aims:
