How can science teaching be improved for the education of young field and laboratory investigators? Employ the talents of storytellers, apply experimental data simulations, and design virtual or augmented reality games.

Michael Bodekaer, the co-founder of Labster an educational media company in Switzerland, wants to make teaching science more accessible using virtual labs and data visualizations. He presented his concepts during a recent event at CERN, the advanced partical physics center, by offering revolutionary demonstrations. They could offer radical improvements to science education in schools and universities.

Teaching 21st Century scientists and engineers will require manipulating 'big data' sets, employing animation and gaming tools, combined virtual reality stories. The collaborations will enhance the practice and understanding of science to help solve critical environmental, climate change, and medical science problems.
