Here’s a great free resource that allows students to practice data collection and other aspects of experimental science without the hassle of actually doing the experiment. Before you start screaming about how it’s important to do these things for real, this is what the makers of this resource say:

“Virtual Experiments are not intended to replace the real hands-on laboratory – science students need to develop the skills of setting up, alignment and adjustment with real equipment – but they can offer huge added value as warm-ups to the real thing, or when equipment is scarce, dangerous or expensive. They also offer simultaneous whole-class access 24/7, they can be repeated as often as you like, and you can’t break them”.
