Learn about matter and its motion and behavior through space and time in our physics lab simulations. Study the most fundamental measurable quantities in the universe, and find relationships between them to explain and predict their behavior.
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
A meteor has crashed to Earth! Search the crash site with a Geiger counter, and bring a radioactive sample back to the lab. Learn all about types of decay, decay series, and half-life. Help Dr. One and Marie Curie figure out what’s in that rock.
Scientists in Greenland need your help! You'll need to discover the effect of low temperatures on scientific equipment at a research facility. Check atomic layer structures inside a battery and use neutron scattering to solve the mystery!
Finish your training in basic physics concepts to join a cutting edge mechanical engineering lab. Team up with Sir Isaac Newton and understand how various forces affect the motion of objects.
Become a spring oscillation master and help determine the magnitude and epicenter of an earthquake using just a mass and a spring.
Join a team of motorsport engineers and learn the basics of Newton’s laws of motion. Understand the basic principles of passive and active safety while driving a high-class race car.
Apply the concept of conservation of energy to make the Labster roller coaster ride faster and more exciting. Calculate potential, kinetic and mechanical energy using the formula board to determine how to best improve the roller coaster track.
Use the Gas Thermometry technique to validate the Ideal Gas Law. Define the absolute zero temperature by carrying out a gas thermometry experiment; handling extreme temperatures with the help of your assistant.
Observe the behavior of an ideal gas and the effects on this behavior when external variables are altered. Learn how the different variables affect the behavior and understand the relation of these variables to the ideal gas law equation.
Learn the basics of gravitation by weighing the famous scientist Sir Isaac Newton and observe the Law of Universal Gravitation in action by changing the mass of the Earth. Travel in space and perform a thought experiment about orbits.
Build your own resistor to repair a broken radio.
Learn how to use polarizing filters like real photographers do. Albert Einstein will help you shed light on the fascinating world of electromagnetic waves by playing with lasers, mirrors & polarizing filters.
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.
