Google Mobile Search now displaying Labster 3D chemistry visualizations

Google has announced the incorporation of more than 15 of Labster’s 3D chemistry visualizations within Google Search as part of its effort to help students with their STEM homework this fall.

Beginning on August 11th, students, teachers and the general public will have access to Labster’s augmented reality learning objects when they search Google for chemistry-related terms using their mobile devices.

Visualizations from Labster will appear in the results, and you will be able to interact with these 3D objects to learn more about chemistry. You can also click through for more detailed information.

“We’re in the middle of a historic time, as millions of students and educators are in big need of new  ways to access high quality learning materials, and we are beyond excited that Google has taken initiative to incorporate these assets into mobile searches,” said Michael Bodekaer Jensen, Labster CEO and co-founder. “Our virtual labs, scientific assets, and other award-winning resources will help learners of all age groups and skill levels through this dynamic partnership.”

Labster’s fully interactive virtual simulations are designed to stimulate students’ natural curiosity and highlight the connection between science and the real world. Students perform realistic experiments, learn key science concepts, and practice their skills in a risk-free learning environment. 

Labster’s simulations have been successfully adopted in online courses around the world, and have also proven to be strong complementary learning tools to in-person education and lab experiences.
