NOVA Labs (pbs.org/nova/labs) is a free science resource from the producers of the NOVA television series on PBS,  the most popular science series on American television. Through NOVA Labs,  teens and lifelong learners take part in real-world investigations by visualizing, analyzing, and playing with the same data that scientists use. These games and activities foster authentic scientific exploration, supported by the world-class science videos that NOVA has been making for over 40 years.

Khan Academy is now excited to offer five different investigations from NOVA Labs for aspiring scientists: Cybersecurity, RNA: the wonder molecule, The Sun and solar storms, Energy, and Clouds. You’ll learn to predict solar storms, design renewable energy systems, track cloud movements, design biomolecules and more. Start exploring today, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
