Remote Learning / Online Experiences

Imagine what your kids will discover this year with The Citizen Science Lab!

We offer fun, hands-on experiments for grades 1 through 12. With a full range of science and engineering adventures — including electronics, outer space, geology, microbiology, chemistry, and aquaponics — there’s sure to be something that excites and inspires the budding scientist in your home.

In our Remote Learning sessions your young scientists will receive:

  • A complete kit of materials and instructions to complete STEM activities and experiments. These kits can either be mailed to each family or scheduled to be picked up at the lab using a no-contact delivery system.
  • Opportunities to ask TCSL’s educators any questions regarding our programming.
  • Access to videos from TCSL’s educators and access to online resources and interactive activities for learning.

Remote Learning with LabXchange

Labs are places of exploration and discovery for every field imaginable. Likewise, you can discover, engage, and share what you learn virtually on LabXchange.

The Citizen Science Lab is now offering Biotechnology Tools and Techniques training via LabXchange. LabXchange is a free online platform for virtual simulations, videos, and animations created by scientists. Learn and practice foundational biotechnology techniques online like isolating DNA/protein, culturing bacteria, or conducting various chemical reactions.

Get Started Today!

A NEW pathway has been added to TCSL’s LabXchange Classroom!!

Learn Plasmid DNA and Recombinant DNA Theory and Techniques online NOW for FREE!

Visit The Xchange Lab Website,, and register for an account (LabXchange requires users to be 13 or older).
