Online labs provide your students with the possibility to conduct scientific experiments in an online environment. Remotely-operated labs (remote labs) offer an opportunity to experiment with real equipment from remote locations. Virtual labs simulate the scientific equipment. Data sets present data from already performed lab experiments. Please use the filters on the right to find appropriate online labs for your class. Labs can be combined with dedicated Apps to create Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs).

If you are looking for online labs especially suitable for the curricula of Benin, Kenya or Nigeria, please visit our Collections page.

If you select labs in English, the descriptions on this website will still be displayed in English. However, when you include the lab in an ILS and change the language setting of the ILS to English, the lab will be displayed in English within the ILS.

Explore bending of light between two media with different indices of refraction. See how changing from air to water to glass changes the bending angle. Play with prisms of different shapes and make rainbows.

This astronomy “Little Big Picture” was programmed by REU student Nick Robe. It is an early effort of the UNL Astronomy Education Group to provide materials for mobile devices. More astronomy teaching materials can be found on the web at astro.unl.edu.

Make a whole rainbow by mixing red, green, and blue light. Change the wavelength of a monochromatic beam or filter white light. View the light as a solid beam, or see the individual photons.Aims of the lab:

This simulation allows students to study reflection and refraction. Students have the ability to change the angle of the laser and the refractive indices of the materials.

Students can change (distance and angle) and study the incoming white light ray and the effect it has on the outgoing rays.

This simulation allows to observe the refraction of light through a converging lens on an abstract level.

In this lab, you can explore what light does when it encounters a diffraction grating. Use at least one of the checkboxes to turn on a beam of light.

What is the minimum height a mirror has to be for you to see your whole self in it? This simulation explores that concept. Note that the black dot on the object (red arrow) represents your eye.

In this lab, you can explore ray diagrams for different types of mirrors. Use the sliders to vary the object position, height, and focal length of the mirror. Observe the changes in the image formed as you do this. Does the position change? Does the height change?
