Labster’s Virtual Labs Mean Your Students Can Do More
All educators want to make sure their students have the access to the best tools possible. For science and research students that means having top of the line lab equipment and support. The problem is, not every school has the same budget for labs. This shouldn’t mean students should suffer, limited in the experiments and research they can perform by the tools in the lab. With Labster, they don’t.
Labster has created virtual lab environments that are being used by top universities, research institutes and labs across the world for educating, teaching and refreshing lab skills. The laboratory simulators empower, scientists, researchers, educators and students in ways that couldn’t be done just a few short years ago.
Technology allows their simulation environments to captivate students with relatable scenarios and 3D animations which make it possible to visualize life science down to the molecular level. The company offers hundreds of topics available in over 60 different simulations ranging from wastewater treatment to acids and bases and everything in between. Labster gives science students unparalleled access to a wet lab learning environment in a fraction of the time and cost. With Labster, all labs can be created equally. Equipment that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars can be simulated within the Labster environment, meaning students can perform more experiments and research.
The Labster simulation environment simulates everything you would actually do in a wet lab. Prior to writing this story we ran through the first simulation which is all about lab safety. Labster asks questions throughout the simulations to make sure students are grasping the concepts.
Labster is also safer, and quicker than an actual wet lab with the ability to learn a lot more and dive into other lab simulations students might not have in an actual lab environment. The company is constantly adding more simulations to their library.
