The following screenshots represent selected simulations in Chemistry from the PhET labs. They are freely available from the PhET website and are easy to use and incorporate into the classroom. They are written in Java and Flash, and can be run using a standard web browser as long as Flash and Java are installed.
Below, you will find a small selection from the Smart Science library of nearly 200 online science labs. View 15 labs designed for CSU general education chemistry courses. Use any of these labs free in your courses as part of the CSU system-wide virtual lab initiative.
Smart Science real online science labs provide instructors and students with uniquely hands-on real lab experiments instead of simulations. Students collect data interactively from real experiments point-by-point using their own care and judgment just as in traditional labs. They predict or hypothesize before or during the experimental activity.
The Smart Science approach ensures that students understand the nature of science, learn scientific thinking skills, and come to appreciate the complexity and ambiguity of empirical work. Smart Science labs include quizzes and online lab reports showing all student lab data and more.
Smart Science labs are delivered in HTML5 for compatibility with all modern platforms.

Created with the same world-class adaptive technology as LearnSmart, LearnSmart Labs is a revolutionary, outcome-based lab simulation. It assesses a student's knowledge and adaptively corrects deficiencies before they enter the real lab space. Students learn faster, achieve greater understanding of both conceptual and practical skills, and retain more knowledge so that their actual laboratory experience is more focused, less wasteful, and ultimately more successful.
