About This Simulation

Start your chemistry journey! Discover and classify physical and chemical properties in order to escape the desolate environment you’ve been stranded on. Find out what metals are acid proof before you find out if you are!

Learning Objectives

  • Define what a physical and chemical property is.
  • Identify and recall examples of physical and chemical properties.
  • Classify different properties as either physical or chemical.

Learn More About This Simulation

Learning with lives on the line!? In this simulation you will learn about the properties of matter, both physical and chemical. When you find a scientist injured in his lab, you must re-discover his research to evacuate. To combat this planet’s freak weather, you must learn about conductivity, flammability, reactivity, and compressive strength. Putting all this knowledge together, you must make a space suit that can survive a fire tornado!

Escape the Lab!

Material properties are either chemical or physical, and you need to know how to spot the difference. As you work through this lab’s different experiment rooms, it may seem all fun and games but, to escape through the flaming emergency hatch in the finale, you must put all your classifying knowledge to the test.

Classifying Properties.

Immerse yourself and get lost in this escape room style simulation. Here, learning is a consequence of enjoying the story! Dive in head first to this world and surface having learned about how physical and chemical properties make up yours.

Sometimes Dr One can just be a floating metal teacher, but not today – today they’re as lost as you are! Nobody is holding your hand here, this is your adventure!

Put out the fire!

To escape this lab you have to pay attention. Though your explosive explorations have shown you flammable rocks, fizzy metals and unbreakable gems, to get out of the lab you must categorize these into physical or chemical properties. After putting out all the fire, can you unlock the escape hatch puzzle?

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.”
