The e-Labs use the Internet and distributed computing in high school classes and provide an opportunity for students to:
- Organize and conduct authentic research.
- Experience the environment of scientific collaborations.
- Possibly to make real contributions to a burgeoning scientific field.
e-Labs address ALL science practices in the Next Generation Science Standards. The Cosmic Ray e-Lab also addresses ALL engineering practices.
