Funded by the Amgen Foundation and developed at Harvard University, LabXchange is a free, online platform for science learning that provides middle school, high school and university level teachers and students with access to personalized instruction, virtual lab experiences and networking opportunities across the global scientific community.
Launched in 2020, the LabXchange platform offers digital content from the world’s leading science organizations and enables users to remix, adapt and assign customized learning experiences. LabXchange's curated library continues to grow with resources that cover multiple disciplines across the sciences and select content available in 14+ languages.
LabXchange and the Amgen Foundation are on a mission to break down barriers and bring science education to everyone, everywhere. We believe that technology complements in-person learning and can create authentic opportunities for young people to learn and engage in science.
Every young person should feel that they belong in science and empowered to find careers that ignite their passions. LabXchange is designed to drive more inclusion in the scientific process and enable creative, team-based approaches to real-world problems. In 2022, analysis showed that 80% of all new users were from low or lower-middle income countries. To fully realize our vision, we aim to grow our global science classroom from 20 million people to 50 million by 2025.
