Enthusiastic and highly qualified instructors lead over 50 unique Virtual Lab (V-Lab) experiences that are live-streamed from our Technology Centers directly into 5th-12th grade classrooms. V-Lab aligns with Next Generation Science Standards that sets expectations for what students should learn and achieve in science classes. All V-Labs are designed for standard 45 to 50 minute class periods. Teachers are provided with all required experiment materials (except water) as well as supporting resources.
Thanks to remote learning capabilities, V-Lab broadens our geographic reach to serve students anywhere in the United States.
We currently offer over 50 V-Lab experiences focusing on the following content areas:
- Earth and Space Science
- Environmental Science
- Life Sciences
Student and Teacher Kits
V-Lab student kits include all materials (except water) required to complete the experiments. The kits are packaged for 30 students to work in pairs.
Teachers toolkits are comprised of supporting resources to help them and their students prepare for the V-Lab experience. The toolkits contain teacher/instructor guides, how-to videos, PowerPoint slides to support experiment, worksheets, claim-evidence-reasoning (CER) worksheets, pre- and post-lab activity sheets, and college & career connection materials.
