We would like to offer the science departments within high schools, colleges, and universities that were affected by Hurricane Harvey the opportunity to utilize our online lab simulations for free for one year.
What can Labster do to help?
We know that many schools have been damaged by Hurricane Harvey, affecting the education of thousands of students this year. If you are dealing with damaged or overcrowded science facilities at your school, we want to help you, your faculty and your students in the best way we can.
What you need to know before signing up
Labster creates simulations that provide a realistic lab experience. This allows students to gain experience in a laboratory setting so they can become familiar with procedures and techniques before they enter a physical lab.
The simulations can easily be set up using only a computer and an internet connection.
Our team will help make implementation as smooth as possible, providing instructions, implementation services, training and resources.
We ensure you that there will be no automatic renewal or obligation to buy after the one year is up.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
