Education Tech Startup ‘Labster’ Introduce Virtual Reality Science Lab For College & Universities
| < 1 minute read
Virtual laboratories allow STEM students to experiment in million-dollar labs at a fraction of a wet lab cost. Saving costs is one core benefit of using online resources for teaching.
A virtual lab simulation includes true-to-life missions for students to complete, highlighting the connection between science and the real world. This makes virtual labs all the more engaging to students asking the inevitable question, “what can I use this for in real life?”
The simulations also have 3D animations, quizzes, and theory, helping students solidify their understanding of difficult concepts. In a virtual lab, a student can speed up time to see the experiments faster, go back in time to correct mistakes, and repeat experiments as often as needed to understand the material fully. All of this makes Labster’s simulations a fun, engaging, and effective way of learning science. In fact, studies have shown that students can learn twice as much with Labster.
Many of the institutions utilizing Labster today use the simulations to prepare their students for practical lab exercises, consolidate students’ understanding of material after practicals, and help them study for exams.
