Free "LabXchange" Science Education Accelerator Launched By Amgen Foundation and Harvard's Faculty of Arts and Sciences

LabXchange by Amgen Foundation and Harvard's Faculty of Arts and
Sciences Reimagines the Science Experience for Students around the
Globe

Purpose-built to Address Educational Barriers with Personalized Instruction

Virtual Lab Simulations Help Students Develop the Science Skills
Needed to Solve Tomorrow's Challenges

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. and CAMBRIDGE, Mass. –  The Amgen Foundation and
the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University (Harvard FAS)
today announced the global launch of LabXchange™, a free online
science education platform that provides users with access to
personalized instruction, virtual lab experiences and networking
opportunities across the global scientific community. LabXchange is
purpose-built to drive more inclusion in the scientific process and
spark collaboration to build creative, team-based approaches to
real-world problems.

"Too many high school and college students lack the opportunity to
directly explore the scientific process – where you build a
hypothesis, understand a method, and determine how to apply it to an
appropriate experimental problem,"  said Robert Lue, Ph.D., principal
investigator of LabXchange and professor of the Practice of Molecular
and Cellular Biology at Harvard. "For many students, science can feel
like a collection of facts to memorize – which is contrary to what the
scientific process is – it's a journey that requires bold thinking and
deep imagination. With LabXchange, more students can come together and
experience the joy of discovery."

Featuring virtual lab experiments developed at LabXchange along with
other world-class assets created by validated partners, LabXchange
brings the scientific process to life. By simulating key techniques in
molecular and cellular biology, like using CRISPR to correct genetic
defects, students can explore a wide range of scientific methods and
build their acumen in harnessing science to solve real-life problems.

"Everyone needs science, and science needs everyone," said Robert A.
Bradway, chairman and chief executive officer at Amgen. "At a time of
remarkable scientific progress, we're excited by the potential of
LabXchange to educate and inspire both students and lifelong learners
of all ages."

LabXchange is designed to level the playing field for students and to
promote science literacy for all. Key features of LabXchange include:

Free access to a library of world-class educational content including
videos, interactive simulation and assessments.

Ability to mix and match materials, empowering teachers to create
flexible learning pathways for classes or individual students that
complement existing science curriculums.

Global networking functionality, enabling teachers to collaborate
beyond a single classroom, school or district.

LabXchange builds upon other Amgen Foundation programs that support
science education, such as the  Amgen Biotech Experience  and  Amgen
Scholars  that are also at Harvard FAS and institutions around the
world.  To date, the Foundation has contributed more than $150 million
to advancing science education programming globally as part of its
mission to facilitate global collaboration on the United Nations
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), notably SDG #4 on Quality
Education but also SDG #3 on Good Health and Well-Being.

This is really an excellent solution for many students and probably everyone can find the best way to study here for themselves. It seems to me that for greater effect, the library with educational material should be expanded. Incidentally, just recently, I also contacted one author on this site https://www.essaywritingnz.com/assignment-help-nz/ who helped me solve the problem with writing the assignment.
