  • illustration of a beaker. Labs
Labs fall into three categories: at-home labs, laboratory kits and virtual labs. At-home labs use commonly found household items or things that can easily be purchased and come with a set of instructions on how to complete the lab. Laboratory kits are very similar to at home-labs – items and directions required to complete the lab are sent directly to you via the purchase of a lab kit. Virtual labs use in-house designed simulations which walk you through any experiment and will ask you lab-related questions. All labs may require a video of you performing the lab and/or a completed lab report.
