UVA Virtual Lab

UVA Virtual Lab

The Virtual Lab, developed by the University of Virginia, provides visual representation of the scientific principles we encounter daily. Mini labs allow visitors to learn about different properties of physics, chemistry and technology. The Electricity and Magnetism Lab introduces concepts like basic charge attraction and repulsion and magnetic induction. Units on semiconductors, circuits, nanoscience and scientific instruments are also available in the Virtual Lab. The UVA is also beginning to convert presentations from the website into narrated Podcasts, which are available from the homepage. This is a great resource to incorporate into the classroom as the labs are very informative, easy to follow, and would aid students in visualizing the scientific concepts they are learning.
