Biology Simulations helps students to learn about biology and practice data analysis skills. These simulations allow students to experiment with concepts that may take too much time or too many resources to complete in a traditional science lab setting. While simulations cannot replace real-world experiences, they are a useful tool in both scientific research and education.
These simulations can be run quickly and each has random components, allowing students to easily gather data from multiple trials. Some simulations are guided virtual labs while others can be used for a science inquiry approach by allowing the user to make decisions and control multiple variables.
