Labster: Virtual Laboratory

Recently I dropped by Methuen High School to check out their new Biotech and Engineering program. The two teachers running the show are in resource gathering mode; finding any equipment, partners, and curriculum to enhance their student's learning experience. The morning after I visited them I came across Labster and immediately sent them the link.

Labster is a virtual laboratory where students can simulate experiments using high end scientific equipment such as a DNA sequencer or Chromotography machine. Since it is a new program they are offering free accounts. Jump on this quick and you will have a virtual 21st century STEM lab in your classroom.
