Investigate the biological processes that occur for animal life to exist at various levels of organization: from membranes through to organelles, cells, organs, organ systems, and to the whole animal.
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
"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
Join this virtual confocal microscopy lab and learn how to take pin-sharp confocal micrographs and 3D renderings. Use the knowledge to save your uncle’s crop from a mysterious plant disease.
Monitor three dives of a Weddell seal in Antarctica and discover how long it can dive with the oxygen available in its stores.
See how deer physiologically respond to climate change. Use a metabolic chamber and Douglas bag to measure the oxygen content, humidity and volume of a deer’s exhaled breath at different temperatures.
Join a physiology laboratory to understand how smooth muscle contracts by performing several in vitro experiments, and help your friend identify the cause of her intestinal pain.
Explore the structure of the kidney and discover its different functions by trying to uncover the mode of action of a new diuretic drug that has the potential to prevent hypertension.
Turn a mouse intestine inside out and use it to study glucose transport in order to figure out what is wrong with an infant.
Use medical tests to gather information about patients and determine how their cardiovascular systems respond to different exercise intensities.
Help out a desperate soccer player who has been badly injured. Will you able to help the sports physician in using the tissue engineering technique to restore damaged articular cartilage?
Dissect a squid and use its giant neuron to witness the propagation of information in the shape of an action potential created by an electric current. Use this information to identify a neurotoxin affecting a hospitalized patient.
Develop a method for keeping a population of rabbits under control by using hormonal treatments. Investigate how different concentrations of different hormones impact the fertility of male and female rabbits.
Learn the basic mechanisms of sensory transduction by performing in vitro and in vivo experiments and determine which anesthetic drug will allow your friend to keep climbing a mountain without having the muscles affected.
Investigate the properties of two types of skeletal muscle and analyze their fiber composition. Use histochemistry and force transduction to compare muscles and learn why you can stay energized on long walks but get tired from a short sprint.
Virtual Labs are interactive science simulations that accelerate STEM learning through gamification. Educators assign labs to students through their internet browsers, where students can train lab skills, visualize abstract theory, and learn science through real-world scenarios.
Elevate your nursing program with UbiSim, a VR solution dedicated to clinical excellence.
"They did the simulation and came to lab, completed it within 30 minutes with no questions, then passed the quiz with flying colors”
Helen Gadegaard explains how you can use Labster in your science course to increase student engagement.
Dr. Melody Esfandiari, conducted her own research on virtual labs in the classroom, comparing grades as well as students' self-reported data about their learning experience. You'll hear Melody's findings and find out what surprised her most.
This guide is designed to help educators teach with virtual labs and the Labster platform, from technical set-up to pedagogical thought-leadership. Get started fast, and discover what you can achieve with science simulations.
