This encompasses all of our higher education and high school simulations across various disciplines (including, but not limited to: Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Medicine, General Science, and Physics).
Virtual Labs are a powerful tool to inspire, engage, and accelerate learning in the high school science classroom.
"Labster is cost effective, it’s easy to use, and you have a better outcome. It’s great when your students tell their friends, ‘hey, you should take this course.”
Cord Carter, Chemistry Lecturer
Fisk University, TN
“I don’t think there’s anyone who has the same expertise in-house that Labster has. I haven’t seen anyone else working in the field have this level.”
Dr. Philippos Savvides
Arizona State University
“Labster allows a dynamic visualization of chemical reactions so that students can practice and better understand these concepts.”
Dr. Sabine Matallana-Surget
“The virtual labs really help the students become familiar with the material before they engage in the class.”
Dr. Paul Kasili
Bunker Hill Community College
"I think all of the teachers are stretched thin, but the nice thing is that having something that's engaging for the students gives teachers that opportunity to breathe and get excited again. Because they're seeing the kids light up, they're seeing the kids engage with content."
Curriculum Coordinator, Modesto School District, California
“My kids like to play around, they like to do simulations, and they’re very visual learners. They’re all into video games so if you can bring the aspect of a video game into your class and teach your content that way, you’ve got 'em hooked.”
Chemistry Teacher, West Ranch High School, CA
"I would absolutely recommend Labster to other high schools! We’ve had a positive experience using it during remote and hybrid instruction, especially given the increasing number of virtual labs available on the platform.”
STEM Supervisor, Randolph High School, NJ
"Giving students time in Labster to explore prior to the wet lab is invaluable. I can spend time with everyone because those skills were already practiced the night before with Labster."
Biotech Teacher, Livingston High School, NJ
“Everything just clicks really well. There is clarity and great graphics, and it makes students analyze, think and process. If you’re looking for really in-depth rigor, then I recommend pairing Labster with in-person laboratories.”
Coordinator, Biomedical Pathways Program, St. John Bosco High School, CA
