The Discover LabSkills project was the subject of an article in the TES last week which describes how LabSkills can help students overcome “experiment phobia”.

This Pfizer-sponsored RSC project has previously been covered in various online and print media, including the Bristol Evening Post, the BBC News website and the Channel 4 News Science and Technology Website.

LabSkills is an interactive, web-based laboratory manual, which has been developed by Bristol ChemLabS staff in association with Learning Science Ltd to improve the practical chemistry skills of Post 16 chemistry students in schools and colleges. It has evolved from the Bristol ChemLabS Dynamic Laboratory Manual (DLM), which forms the centrepiece of the newly refurbished Undergraduate Teaching Laboratories in the school of Chemistry at the University of Bristol.

LabSkills are soon to be relaunching their website to coincide with the release of the full A-Level and individual student versions of the software.
