With more than 30 biology lab lessons to choose from, you can be confident you're delivering biology labs online that are just as rigorous and high-quality as your on-campus labs. Our labs are based on extensive academic research, developed by scientists, peer-reviewed, and customizable to suit your needs.

Hands-on Biology Labs

With our broad range of innovative hands-on labs, your students will observe biological phenomena, generate testable hypotheses, collect data, and analyze results — just as they would in class. From a modeling meiosis activity or mitosis lab to homeostasis labs, you can: 

  • Create an active learning environment online that promotes deeper student engagement, critical thinking, and problem solving.
  • Give students the chance to use lab-grade materials and equipment that match the sophistication of a formal lab facility. 
  • Build hands-on kits that suit your needs and budget, like choosing between compound light microscopes or a virtual SI V-scope.

Virtual Biology Labs

Similarly, our virtual labs for biology can supplement hands-on labs that require expensive equipment and be used to cover fundamental concepts like the scientific method, graphing prep, or formula work. You might also consider using virtual labs as pre-lab work for in-person labs in order to better prepare students. From an online photosynthesis lab to a cellular respiration lab or macromolecular virtual lab, students can run biology simulations an unlimited number of times in order to:

  • Manipulate different variables, re-run the experiment, and see different results, especially important for struggling students. 
  • Reinforce critical learning outcomes while exploring additional concepts that may not directly align with your course objectives.
  • Ensure practicality when it comes to costs and time.

Effective, High-Quality Biology Curriculum

Science Interactive develops the highest quality online curriculum for both hands-on or virtual biology labs.

  • Developed by PhD scientists, with measurable learning outcomes, detailed experimental protocols, and questions that tie into the core learning objectives. 
  • Reviewed by instructional designers for quality, accuracy, safety, and ADA compliance — and peer-reviewed by active biology professors for content accuracy.
  • Certified by Quality Matters to ensure the same standards of rigor and quality as on-campus bio courses. 

Flexible Platform to Guide Students through Biology Labs Online

All of the curriculum is turnkey and can be used in your course right away. We also make it easy to customize, infusing each lab with your own unique instructional style and outcomes. Our LMS-integrated lab management platform allows you to:

  • Customize any part of a lesson by adding or removing text, images, and videos to enhance lessons and guide students through each bio lab.
  • Assess student work with automatic grading for multiple choice questions.
  • Provide constructive feedback so each student can continue improving for the next lab.
