Virtual Labs: Virtual Labs, also known as VLabs, are a wonderful opportunity for you to conduct experiments with a museum educator without leaving your school! If you sign up for a VLab, your class will be mailed a complete lab, tools and instruments included, and they will be able to interact with a museum educator as they simultaneously conduct experiments via live teleconferencing!  Program length is 60 minutes.
