Lab4U presents the new app for experimentation in Biology.
Lab4Biology comes with two innovative tools to facilitate students’ research process. With these tools (and over 20 predesigned experiments), students can learn more about biology while developing scientific skills that will help them meet 21st-century demands.
All of our predesigned tools and experiments are affordable, given their use of smartphone sensors and everyday materials. Using them, students will be able to explore the most important topics in Biology, including cell biology, physiology, microbiology, ecology, evolution, and more.
Lab4Biology comes with two innovative tools
Explore Biology’s Most Relevant Topics
Explore the Living Being Model, which focuses on the care and characteristics of physiology and human health. Investigate different systems, such as the nervous system, locomotor, cardiac, endocrine systems, among others.
Check out the Cell Model, which focuses on reproductive and structural processes critical to different types of cells.
Learn more about the micro and macro evolutionary processes that allow speciation through natural selection. We’ve also integrated theories related to the origins of life and diversity and organism classification.
Our Ecosystem Model covers to the process of environmental care and climate change, which we hope will motivate students to better understand take care of our planet.
Here we combine the cell and health topics to learn about how to prevent diseases caused by pathogenic microorganisms present in the environment, like water. Also looks at characteristics of different types of microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, as well as the immunity of the organism.
How do we design our learning experiences?
Experiments at Lab4U are created according to these principles and strategies
Inquiry-based learning is one of the scholastic activities that best represents scientific work. It corresponds to a constructivist methodology and is based on the design of learning cycles where a student must answer a question through an investigation (experimental, non-experimental, documentary). The approach aims to both shed light on the original research question and encourages students to use their acquired knowledge in new contexts.
We anchor our process in the resolution of researchable scientific questions and hypotheses verification. We measure the real world by controlling and manipulating variables. An experimental approach is important for nurturing the research processes and encourage the development of scientific skills and competences.
Project-based Learning (PBL)
This learning approach is based on the design of innovative projects that aim to find solutions to different issues related to school science. These problems are usually of a socio-scientific nature and projects can be developed in an interdisciplinary way.
The STEM approach links school education to the development of skills and knowledge in a proposal that promotes scientific vocations and corrects gender gaps in a global economic framework. The acronym references interdisciplinary work between science, technology, engineering and math. In this way, STEM encourages the use of socio-scientific issues, PBL and inquiry-based learning.
