About This Simulation

Learn about magnets and magnetic fields in Labster's magnetism lab and use your knowledge to solve puzzles and capture an unruly rover.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the magnetic field lines around a bar magnet
  • Demonstrate how magnetic field lines change when two magnets interact
  • Explain how the alignment of magnetic domains affects the magnetic fields of induced and permanent magnets

Learn More About This Simulation

Magnets are on your fridge, inside your computer, and maybe even in your wallet! In this simulation you will learn about magnets, the fields they create, how they react to one another, and how they arise from microscopic magnetic domains.  

Levi, get back here! 

Use your knowledge of magnetism to catch the playful rover Levi before he wreaks havoc in the magnetism lab. Arrange the magnets and analyze magnetic domains to create the right magnetic fields and solve the puzzles that unlock different areas of the lab. Explore all areas of the lab to become a magnetism expert!

Unlock lab rooms using magnets Every area of the magnetism lab is unlocked by a puzzle that relies on the knowledge of an aspect of magnetism. Students will test their knowledge of magnetic fields and the mutual interactions of a collection of magnets to open the different locks and find the rogue rover. They will be aided by attractive visualizations including an interactive 3D animation of the magnetic field and by engaging puzzle minigames that build knowledge incrementally, detecting and correcting common misconceptions while offering an exciting challenge to students. VIP card access

In the end, you will learn about the microscopic origin of magnetism, magnetic domains, and permanent magnets to make use of one of the many applications of magnetism in daily life: magnetic cards. Use a magneto-optic microscope to explore the microscopic structures of different magnetized cards and find the permanent magnet.  Will you be able to put an end to Levi's mischief?

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

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.
