#DryLabsRealScience has been meeting twice a month to discuss the challenges of lab provision in the face of COVID-19. We share good practice, experiences and tips around an alternative to lab provisions and research projects. We hold fortnightly webinars; if you would like to join the mailing list and receive invites to the sessions, or if you'd like to present a talk, then please email any one of us using the grey buttons.

Interactive websites, endless calculations
Dr Peter Klappa, University of Kent @pk_kent
Peter has provided links to his websites (above) that contain a wide range of resources, from interactive virtual experiments (Dry Labs) to unlimited calculations practice. He is generously offering to work with members of the #DryLabsRealScience community to develop additional resources that will fill gaps in current provision - do get in touch.
Interactive video resources
Dr Nigel Francis, Swansea University @Nige1980
Nigel's resources include interactive simulations and videos – including a virtual flow cytometer, immunology revision game and lab equipment and technique demonstration videos with some common error quizzes. Some resources are still in development but can be freely downloaded and embedded in your own VLEs using the SCORM packages where available. These resources have all been made freely available but please attribute the work that the creators have put in if sharing with your students.
