What is a Virtual/Remote Laboratory
A Remote laboratory makes use of telecommunications to remotely conduct real experiments, at the physical location of the operating technology, whilst the person running the experiment is utilising technology from a separate geographical location. A Virtual laboratory though is an interactive environment for creating and conducting simulated experiments.
The aim of UniSChooLabs was to improve the quality of science education in Europe. The pedagogical approaches and scenarios developed by the project were based on inquiry-based learning and problem-solving approaches, where learners learn by doing and through inquiry (science experiments) both in real and in virtual settings.
