Intro to Biology

Learn about the basics of life and living organisms in our Biology Principles simulations. Study cells, genes and evolution and dive into the many layers of biology to discover what life is, and what it means for living beings’ existence on earth.

MIL_2

General Biology

Learn about life and living organisms in our General Biology (I & II) lab simulations. Study cells, genes and evolution and dive into the many layers of biology to discover what life is, and what it means for our own, and all the other living beings’ existence on earth.

MIH_3

High School Biology

Learn about the basics of life and living organisms in our biology simulations for high school. Study cells, genes and evolution and dive into the many layers of biology to discover what life is, and what it means for living beings’ existence on earth.

Biotechnology

Learn how to develop bio-products from living systems and organisms in our biotechnology lab simulations. Study how living organisms can be modified and used in fields such as pharmaceuticals and agriculture. Learn about what role genetically modified organisms play in the research of diseases such as cancer.

bsl1

Biochemistry

Learn about the chemical processes in living organisms in our biochemistry lab simulations. Study biomolecules and learn how they create these processes. Discover how you get the energy you need for living, and how enzymes help every one of your body’s functions.

Anatomy &
Physiology

Learn how cells make up organs and systems, and how a well regulated communication between all of them makes the existence of organisms possible in our Anatomy & Physiology lab simulations. Study human physiology and discover how the different organs in your body carry out their duty and keep you alive - without you even noticing!

CRH_cell

Cellular & Molecular Biology

Learn about the structures and functions of the different types of cells as well as the biomolecules within them in our cellular and molecular biology lab simulations. Study the life cycles of the cell and how they interact with the environment. Discover how the knowledge of cells is fundamental to all biomedical sciences and is essential for research in fields such as cancer and other diseases.

Food Science & Nutrition

Learn about the health, biological and chemical aspects of the food we eat in our Food Science & Nutrition simulations. Study the applications of the pure sciences to food, and understand the wider implications of diet on our health and well-being. Discover new applications in the development, processing and production of food.

Shrubland

Ecology

Learn about how organisms interact with each other and their environment in our ecology lab simulations. Gain a deeper understanding of the distribution and abundance of living beings in their physical environments. Dive into the many levels of ecology and study at the level of the organism, population, community, ecosystem or biosphere.

evo3

Evolution & Diversity

Learn about the change of populations over generations in our evolution and life diversity lab simulations. Study the evolutionary processes of species, organisms and molecules and discover how these processes pave the way for biodiversity.

IGX_2

Microbiology

Learn about the microorganisms that are all around and inside us in our microbiology lab simulations. Study the living organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye, and explore how to handle them in the laboratory - even when they are very dangerous. Discover how microorganisms play an important role in the causes, but also control, of diseases.

Read the Virtual Labs in Science Education Whitepaper

This whitepaper lays out the need for change in science education and highlights the unique advantages virtual laboratories offer while also addressing the skepticism surrounding their use. Throughout the whitepaper you’ll find published research studies evaluating the effectiveness of virtual labs, as well as first-hand case studies from independent educators who have used virtual labs in their courses.

The whitepaper covers:

  • The 5 challenges of science education today
  • How virtual labs can improve learning and teaching
  • Skepticism surrounding virtual labs
  • Effectiveness of virtual labs: what does the research say?

What the professors say

"The majority of students perceived that the simulations improved their learning of DNA-based technologies, students were motivated to complete the simulation and felt more confident at the end.”
"One way to make science more attractive is to make it real. And for me, one thing that Labster does really well is to make it real and fun. Labster brings both humor and relevance, as well as real life context to science education.”
"Simulations present concepts in a more intuitive and less abstract way by providing a dynamic representation of chemical reactions or mechanisms at a molecular level.”
