Harvard’s LabXchange has just released a suite of lab simulations with assessments and guidance that focus on basic molecular biology techniques. The LabXchange library also includes a curated set of simulations drawn from partner sources like PHET and the Concord Consortium. How to combine these simulations with supporting content and your own assessments is described here. You will be able to assign these simulations with your associated assessments and get your students’ performance data. For additional help email: email@example.com.
Interactive Simulations for Science and Math
A large list of resources for laboratories in a variety of science disciplines. Most are always free, some are temporarily free.

This site houses a number of open educational resources developed for use with (predominantly) first year biochemistry and microbiology undergraduates in the Faculty of Biological Sciences, to support their preparation for practical classes.
The ChemCollective is a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, tutorials, and concept tests. Teachers can use our content for pre-labs, for alternatives to textbook homework, and for in-class activities for individuals or teams. Students can review and learn chemistry concepts using our virtual labs, simulations, and tutorials. The ChemCollective is organized by a group of faculty and staff at Carnegie Mellon who are interested in using, assessing, and creating engaging online activities for chemistry education.
Each year, the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge puts on a spectacular demonstration lecture for the public, generously supported by The Walters Kundert Charitable Trust. With a strong narrative throughout, all the demonstrations have been devised to illustrate particular concepts for that lecture with many experiments never seen before.
There are many ways to locate videos at RSC's Education website. One approach is to search "video" in the main search box and then refine along the left side as appropriate, including a limit for "Exhibition chemistry" under "By Type" filter or "Video" under the "By Use" filter.
The CSD Teaching Subset includes a wide variety of molecules and can be used to enhance chemistry learning across the curriculum. By integrating crystal structures into your course you will provide your students with the chance to visualise and manipulate molecules in 3D and to work with real measured data.

The BioDigital Human is an interactive 3D software platform for visualizing anatomy, disease, and treatment.
An overview to X-ray Astronomy and X-ray sources: from black holes to galaxy clusters.
The Math You Need, When You Need It modules give you the quantitative skills that you need, just before you will use them in your geoscience course. Each individual module addresses a single math topic in your geoscience course and is divided into three parts:
1. a page that introduces and explains the concept (Why is it important? Where is it used?) and provides a set of steps that you can use to solve mathematical problems in lab or class,
2. a set of practice problems in the context of geology with worked answers (using the steps provided on the introduction page), and
3. (optional) a set of quiz questions that provide an opportunity to show what you learned. If your instructor uses this part of the website, you will be provided with a login and password by your instructor.
