About This Simulation

Learn about the anatomy and functions of the upper and lower respiratory tract while rebuilding the respiratory system on a broken model. Follow the journey of air all the way from the nasal cavity to the alveoli.

Learning Objectives

  • Distinguish the functions of the upper and lower respiratory tract
  • Name the organs that make up the respiratory system
  • Describe the structure and function of the lungs and the pleural coverings

Learn More About This Simulation

Join us to follow the flow of air through the complete respiratory system. In this simulation, you will learn about the anatomy of the respiratory system and its major functions. You'll be introduced to the respiratory tract and pleurae and get to assemble the lobes of the lungs and bronchial tree on our live anatomy model.

Help! The anatomy model keeps falling apart

After getting introduced to the upper respiratory tract, watch as the rest of our anatomy model's respiratory tract falls apart before your eyes! Regenerate the lower respiratory tract one piece at a time to see how the bronchial tree branches all the way from the trachea down to the alveoli. See if you can distinguish between the upper and lower respiratory tracts by answering our quizzes and riddles.

Reassemble the lobes of the lungs

It happened again! Watch as the lobes of the lungs of our model fall apart. Piece the lungs together again to discover the difference in lobular structure between the right and left lung.

Puncture the pleurae of the lungs

After reassembling the bronchial tree, lungs and looking closer at the pleurae, you get to puncture the pleurae of our anatomy model to demonstrate their function. Watch the air escape the lung and leave it deflated. Are you ready? Take our breath away!

For Science Programs Providing a Learning Advantage

Professor Margaret Brady was able to enhance student learning with A&P virtual labs.

“They did the simulation at home, then completed the in-person lab within 30 minutes, no questions asked, and passed the quiz with flying colors.”

Lewis Mattin
PhD
Lecturer in Human Physiology
University of Westminster

"I saw some of the students who clearly didn’t necessarily like sitting there reading a book discover they could turn on Labster and keep up with the rest of the class because it spoke to them.

Melody McGill
Curriculum Coordinator
Modesto City Schools

"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."

"The question always is, ‘Can we demonstrate that the students are meeting course outcomes?’ Check! We can do that.”

Dr. Melody Esfandiari
Chemistry Lecturer
San José State University

"We surveyed over 400 students. More than 90% thought Labster was easy to navigate, and that it was fun, but more importantly, most of them felt confident that they could execute the labs in person. And that confidence is a big deal."

“The Labster simulations get students to do things, and they're not just sitting there consuming a webinar where their mind can drift. They become an active participant in that learning experience.”

How do students access Labster?

Labster is hosted online, which means that students only have to login from their internet browsers once an account is created.

How is Labster purchased?

Labster is only available for purchase by faculty and administration at academic institutions. To procure Labster, simply reach out to us on our website. Schedule a demo, book a meeting to discuss pricing, start a free trial, or simply fill out our contact form.

How is Labster different from other learning solutions?

Labster simulations are created by real scientists and designed with unparalleled interactivity. Unlike point and click competitors, Labster simulations immerse students and encourage mastery through active learning.

What types of courses does Labster support?

Labster supports a wide range of courses at the high school and university level across fields in biology, chemistry and physics. Some simulations mimic lab procedures with high fidelity to train foundational skills, while others are meant to bring theory to life through interactive scenarios.
