Virtual Science Labs, Anytime, Anywhere

Steven Wang got into the tech field about seven years ago—as a pre-adolescent. Now, at 17, he has a concrete vision for how he wants to use technology to transform the learning experiences of students all over the world. He is CEO and cofounder of a startup company called Realism that offers virtual labs in physics, chemistry, and biology, including one that puts students into the shoes of a NASA engineer and asks them to use their chemistry knowledge to input fuel values and launch a rocket into space. Students’ actions determine whether the rocket makes it into space or reaches a lesser altitude before blowing up. Another lab gives students a chance to sequence and replicate DNA using skills from their biology classes. Realism is built on the inquiry learning pedagogy championed by the Next Generation Science Standards. Every lab is deeply integrated into the standards and methodologies that define 21st century learning. Teachers and students can check out some of the simulations currently available for free on the Realism virtual lab platform.
