Student Testimonials


Laboratory experience plays an important role in imparting technical and scientific education for students, but traditional laboratories are costly to maintain, limiting possibilities for practical exercises. Virtual laboratories have been proposed to reduce cost and simplify maintenance of lab facilities while offering students a safe environment to build up experience and enthusiasm for STEM (Science, Technologies, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects without geographical limitations. Virtual labs combined with hands-on experience enable students to participate and interact in inquiry-based classes where they can implement and analyze their own experiments, learn by using virtual objects and apparatus. Utilizing virtual labs provides students with the chance to develop critical thinking, innovative and team working skills, all of which are highly valued in today’s job market.

STEM-EX project, as a part of the EDUTECHEX Research and Innovation program, is currently developing virtual labs to revolutionize the way STEM subjects are taught throughout Indian schools and colleges. STEM-EX draws from the expertise of academic and industry partners and incorporates virtual reality with gamification and augmented reality with personalized learning. STEM-EX has a special emphasis on developing virtual labs along with affordable realistic labs giving insights into the R&D innovations happening in emerging technological fields globally.
