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 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.
This model is an agent-based population genetics simulation. The program contains the tools to conduct virtual experiments violating all the assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg theory (small population, selection, mutation, migration, and non-random mating).
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.
This model simulates the classic example of natural selection on color patterns in peppered moths (Biston betularia). When air pollution is low, lichens cover the trees and the light moths are well camouflaged. When air pollution is high, the trees become dark and the light moths stand out.
Test the pH of things like coffee, spit, and soap to determine whether each is acidic, basic, or neutral. Visualize the relative number of hydroxide ions and hydronium ions in solution. Switch between logarithmic and linear scales.
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.
Diffusion describes how particles of matter move through other liquids and gases (including air). Diffusion explains how the mass of particles and temperature are related to how quickly particles spread out over an area.
Phase Changes are changes of state, such as the change from liquid to gas, solid to liquid, or gas to liquid. When we heat particles, why are they able to change their state?
The number of individuals in a population, or population size, is perhaps the most important thing to know about a population.
Play with objects on a teeter totter to learn about balance. Test what you've learned by trying the Balance Challenge game.The primary aims of the lab are:1) Predict how objects of various masses can be used to make a plank balance,
