Engage All High School Learners in STEM
Every student deserves equal access to a high-quality science education. Students with physical impairments, diverse backgrounds and preferences to learn in non-English languages can now learn more comfortably with our new, fully accessible and inclusive virtual labs. To try one for free – and share it with your students – fill out the form below. This trial ends on September 30th, 2021.
Meet all learners where they are
You can support all your students with Labster’s virtual labs and curriculum resources. As your partner in virtual science education, we’re proud to have been named a leader in accessible virtual science labs by a third party evaluator.
Your students' benefits:
Overcoming physical limitations
Labster accommodates students with visual and hearing impairments. In accessibility mode:
- color is not used as a sole means of instruction in images or during quizzes
- dialogue is captioned and all sounds have a text supplement
- students can play simulations using only the keyboard
- students can use a screen-reader with alternative text for images, including extra descriptions of laboratory equipment, animations, and environmental scenery
Representation of all learners
Representation matters. Labster is committed to creating characters in our simulations who look like your students. In fact, we randomly generate the skin tone of each player’s avatar. In addition to providing modern and relevant storylines, we strive to present an inclusive world as it relates to gender, sexuality, ethnic, racial and cultural diversity within the STEM fields.
Supporting speakers of multiple languages
Labster’s virtual labs use accurate scientific terminology to present advanced scientific concepts, procedures, and equipment. Your students can choose the language in which they learn best in our newest labs. Our virtual lab simulations are currently available in:
