October 26, 2022

We're so excited to announce this special October 2022 product update! Labster has released 10 new simulations that educators helped to inspire and evaluate, bringing us to a total of 300 simulations in the Labster learning platform. These new interactive labs will help students explore topics from Anatomy and Physiology to Earth and Space Science. Check them out and join us in celebrating this latest milestone - and thank you for being a part of Labster’s first decade of innovation!

New simulations  

Labster’s library of lab simulations, 3D science videos, science images, theory pages, lab manuals, and other STEM learning resources can serve as a single, central resource for interactive science courseware across an entire department, university, or college system. Think of it as your very own science laboratory building – in the cloud!

Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy of the Respiratory System: Help rebuild a broken system

Students study the organs in the respiratory system and how the system functions. They get an interactive look at how humans breathe by reassembling the lobes of the lung and completing other fun activities.

Chemistry

Formulas and Equation Balancing: Save the chemistry lab!

Students learn how to balance chemical equations. They then put their newfound knowledge to the test to save the science lab from impending doom.

Reactions and Structure: Alkenes

Students study the structural characteristics of alkenes. They then discover how this hydrocarbon acts as the catalyst for many reactions in organic chemistry.

Reactions and Structure: Alkyl halides, alkanes, and organometallics

Students are taught how to identify and classify alkanes and alkyl halides. They use this knowledge to relight the grill at the school’s barbecue.

Earth and Space Science (high school)

Plate Tectonics: Boundaries and crustal features

Students board a submarine and dive underwater to collect crustal rock samples. Then, they learn how plate boundaries cause different landforms, such as faults, mountain ranges, and volcanoes.

Continental Drift Theory: Past and future locations of the world's continents

Students will investigate the different forms of evidence that support the continental drift theory and use their knowledge to demonstrate where the continents were located in the past and where they will move in the future.

(video coming soon!) 

Physics (high school) 

Magnetic Fields

Students study magnets, magnetic fields, magnetic reactions to one another, and microscopic magnetic domains. They then solve puzzles to capture Levi, the rover that went rogue.

Fission: Discover a powerful energy source

Students discover how to use fission as a sustainable energy source. As part of their adventure, they (safely!) activate and restart a nuclear reactor.

Fusion: The future of energy

Students learn about nuclear fusion and how it’s the future of energy. During the simulation, they combine 3D atoms and activate a fusion reactor.

Coulomb's Law: Electrifying electrostatics

Students measure the strength of an electrostatic force and determine its direction. They also use Coulomb’s law to predict the electrostatic force between items.

What’s coming next

We’re working tirelessly to make Labster even more comprehensive, engaging, and accessible for you and your students. That means you can expect more new simulations and platform improvements soon!
