EduWebLabs

Welcome to Educational Web Labs, an interactive site for education in science. This site was designed to give the student an opportunity to manipulate laboratory equipment, gather data and process that data following standard mathematical and observational techniques. The labs follow procedures found in most school experiments and include the opportunity to make mistakes and observe the results. These labs can be used as stand alone labs, as pre-labs for a classroom assignment or as a setting to

Johnson Explorations

As every teacher knows, hands-on experience is far and away the most effective way to learn anything. To teach art, let a student paint; to teach driving, let a student drive a car; to teach science, let a student do an experiment. Unfortunately, there is a limit to how much science can be taught hands-on in a classroom. This is particularly true of biology, in which students typically encounter a variety of concepts and organisms and can spend only a limited amount of time in a laboratory, if a

Stanford Virtual Labs Project

The Virtual Labs Project began in 1998 with funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to create online interactive media which help students learn difficult concepts in human biology. As part of our outreach and sustainability efforts we teach an interaction design course at Stanford (CS377d), offer student and teacher internships, and lead workshops (in media development, educational technology, and implementation). This website is in collaboration with other Stanford programs to colle

Virtual Scanning Electron Microscope

Award-winning electron microscopist Dr. Dennis Kunkel has produced a series of interactive Java tutorials that explore various aspects of virtual Scanning Electron Microscopy (vSEM). Visitors can adjust the focus, contrast, and magnification of microscopic creatures viewed at thousands of times their actual size. Use the tutorial below to discover how specimens such as insects, dust motes and more, appear when magnified in the virtual SEM.
