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).

If you are looking for online labs especially suitable for the curricula of Benin, Kenya or Nigeria, please visit our Collections page.

A simple simulator for visualizing the expansion of the universe. Users can see vectors describing the velocities of galaxies and note that all galaxies are moving away from us. They can then change their perspective to another galaxy and note that Hubble's Law is seen from there as well.

This simulation shows the four inner planets of the solar system, as they orbit the Sun. Moving out from the Sun, we see Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, in that order.

This is an online planetarium. It allows students to observe planets, constellations and deep sky objects on a chosen day.

The light pollution simulator aimed at demonstrating the impact of artificial light on the observation of the night sky. Just click on the image (moon, house or place in front of it) to add lights, then on the lights to change their configuration.

In this lab, pupils can simulate the impact of an object (e.g., an asteroid) on the Earth, Moon or Mars. They can vary parameters such as the diameter, density and velocity of the projectile and see the characteristics of the resulting crater.

 Move the sun, earth, moon and space station to see how it affects their gravitational forces and orbital paths. Visualize the sizes and distances between different heavenly bodies, and turn off gravity to see what would happen without it!Sample learning goals:

What keeps the Earth moving in its approximately circular path around the Sun? It's a combination of the 30 km/s speed of the Earth and the gravitational force exerted on the Earth by the Sun.

  This applet plots the orbital motion of a spaceship launched from Earth at a given speed. Students need to find the best orbit to Mars by launching at a different speeds and at different times, to meet with Mars as it moves around its orbit.
