Abstract

This project proposes the Remotely Operated Science Experiment (ROSE) framework, allowing younger school children to remotely access and manipulate laboratory equipment that is physically located in a different geographic area via a web-based control interface. Our goal is to use modern technology to provide students with enough learning opportunities to conduct science experiments that are essential to science education, particularly for students in underprivileged areas. To increase the feasibility of the ROSE framework, we also include an implementation of a ROSE lab as an example and an application of the ROSE lab in a rural area in India. Moreover, we propose an idea of global ROSE contest to invite educators, in one way, to implement ROSE labs, sharing their laboratory resources, and in the other way, to apply ROSE labs to their teaching, sharing their best practices. By doing so, we hope to promote a climate of global collaboration to improve science education.
