## Why Labster?

Labster’s immersive virtual labs are proven to engage students in science, reduce dropout rates, decrease overhead, and improve learning outcomes.

### Labster helps teachers increase their students’ knowledge and test scores.

Research shows that low-knowledge students improve the most after using Labster, with a 24% increase in their test scores.

Source: BMC Study

### 80% of students said Labster made them more likely to continue enrolling in STEM classes.

Over 50% of first-year STEM students in the United States either change their majors or fail to earn their degree.

Source: LXD Study

### 90% of students agreed that Labster provided opportunities for additional lab practice.

Undergraduate students typically require more time to complete lab experiments than provided.

"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

Stirling University

“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."

Melody McGill

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.”

Shawn Zeringue

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."

Diane Sigales

Biotech Teacher, Livingston High School, NJ
