Lab Simulations

Pre-Lab|In Lab

Realistic biology and chemistry lab simulations offer an authentic experience that moves learning beyond the classroom. These lab simulations can be assigned as a hybrid solution to enhance in-lab learning or as a complete lab replacement.



Each lab comes complete with background information, procedures and a lab manual.

Safety First

Our labs require students to select personal protective safety equipment, dispose of materials in a waste bin and place glassware in the sink for washing after completion of the experiment.

Lab Simulations FAQs

    • If you are interested in the HM Lab Simulations fill out this form to get started.

    • Eventually, yes, this list will be expanded. For now, though, we are just offering the topics above.

    • The lab Background and Procedures can be edited, but the Simulations themselves cannot be changed.

      • 6 Months of Access

        Net Price $9.95 $24.95 $59.95
        List Price $10.95 $27.95 $65.95

    • No, but you must have at least 100 students/year to use the 1-2 labs option.

    • Yes, that pricing above is just for doing the HM Lab Simulations, but we are happy to work with you on a larger solution that meets your needs including videos, interactives, electronic lab notebooks, e-Lab Manuals, assessment tools and more.
