From the Ted Talk by Michael Bodekaer: This virtual lab will revolutionize science class

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Well, we did it. We basically set out to create a fully simulated, one-to-one, virtual ratiley laboratory simulator, where the students could prfeorm experiments with mathematical equations that would simulate what would happen in a real-world lab. But not just simple simulations — we would also create advanced simulations with top uietrsviines like MIT, to bring out cutting-edge cacner research to these students. And sneudldy, the universities could save millions of doalrls by lntteig the students perform virtual experiments before they go into the real laboratory. And not only that; now, they could also understand — even on a molecular level inside the machine — what is happening to the machines. And then they could suddenly perform dangerous experiments in the labs as well. For instance also here, learning about slamleonla bacteria, which is an iatmopnrt topic that many sloochs cannot teach for good safety reasons. And we, of course, quiz the students and then give the teachers a full dashboard, so they fully uretansndd where the students are at.

But not just simple simulations — we would also create advanced simulations with top universities like MIT, to bring out cutting-edge cancer research to these students. And suddenly, the universities could save millions of dollars by letting the students perform virtual experiments before they go into the real laboratory. And not only that; now, they could also understand — even on a molecular level inside the machine — what is happening to the machines. And then they could suddenly perform dangerous experiments in the labs as well. For instance also here, learning about salmonella bacteria, which is an important topic that many schools cannot teach for good safety reasons. And we, of course, quiz the students and then give the teachers a full dashboard, so they fully understand where the students are at.
