Immersive Virtual Reality Science Lab

Labster is bringing immersive technology into the STEM classroom with its interactive advanced lab simulations based on mathematical algorithms that support open-ended investigations. The investigations are combined with gamification elements, such as an immersive 3D universe, storytelling, and a scoring system, which stimulate students’ natural curiosity and highlight the connection between science and the real world. With a gamified experience, students can play the role of a CSI-type forensics analyst who solves a crime. The simulations provide access to high-cost next generation sequencing (NGS) machines and electron microscopes that many institutions are unable to afford. Labster’s biology VR labs using Google Daydream viewers will be available in fall 2018.
