About This Simulation

Fusion is the future of energy and it's up to you to figure out how to harness it. Explore this advanced fusion reactor and learn all of the science needed to have the power of the sun in the palm of your hand.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate the conditions needed for fusion to occur
  • Demonstrate that the total number of neutrons plus protons is the same both before and after the nuclear process, although the total number of protons and the total number of neutrons may be different before and after.
  • Demonstrate that fusion processes release energy in a scale much larger than from chemical reactions and require initial energy for the reaction to take place

Learn More About This Simulation

Discover the future of energy by activating a fusion reactor. In this simulation you will learn about nuclear fusion. How come it is so difficult to reproduce on Earth? What elements can I create? Where does all the energy come from? With your team's nuclear scientist missing, it's up to you to answer all of these questions. 

Bringing the future home!

Your mission is to bring home important knowledge about nuclear fusion from another planet. To understand fusion you will be going through a set of interactive learning activities with animated graphs, simple infographics, and visualizations. Applying this knowledge will help you progress around the lab. You may be stuck lightyears away from Earth!

Fusion in your hands.

Fusion is all about visualizing atoms combining together and how this releases energy. With this simulation, you'll interact with 3D atoms and combine them with your hands. You will even demonstrate Einstein's E=mc2 with a set of nano-sensitive weighing scales!

Restart the reactor. Ahead of you is the reactor, locked behind 3 security questions. As this is a fusion reactor, the questions are all on the topic of nuclear fusion. These questions ensure that if you harness the secrets of renewable energy, you have got to understand it! Think you're up for the challenge?

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.
