The Go-Lab Project (Global Online Science Labs for Inquiry Learning at School) opens up online science laboratories (remote and virtual labs) for the
large-scale use in school education. The overall aim of the project is to encourage young people aged from 10 to 18 to engage in science topics, acquire scientific inquiry skills, and
experience the culture of doing science by undertaking active guided experimentation.
To achieve this aim, the Go-Lab project creates the Go-Lab
Portal allowing science teachers finding online labs and inquiry learning applications appropriate for their class, combining these in Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs) supporting
particular lesson scenarios, and sharing the ILSs with their students. Using the ILSs, the students receive the opportunity to perform personalized scientific experiments with online labs in
a structured learning environment.
In the Go-Lab Repository you can find remote and virtual laboratories for different science
domains such as Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, and Math. You can use these labs together with your students to enrich your classroom activities with interactive
experiments and appealing demonstrations. Moreover, here you can find inquiry learning applications, which will support your students in formulating research questions and hypotheses,
conducting scientific experiments, and drawing conclusions.
By registering on the authoring platform Graasp, you receive the possibility to create your
own Inquiry Learning Spaces (ILSs). An ILS is a virtual learning space, where you can collect online labs and apps selected from the Repository. You can customize the ILS according to your needs adding educational resources, instructions, and exercises for
your students. Each student can login to the ILS and conduct personalized experimentation being guided through the phases of the Inquiry Learning Cycle. You can either create your ILS from scratch or
select one of the ready-to-use templates in the Repository.
If you have a question, need support, or want to share your experiences with other teachers, join ourCommunity and Tutoring Platform! Here you can attend scheduled video sessions answering the most frequent questions, consult Go-Lab
experts, and share your practices with the international teacher community. Moreover, after you have gained some experience, you can also become an expert and
support other teachers in working with Go-Lab. Don’t miss this opportunity and become a part of Go-La
