The OpenScience Laboratory (OSL) was launched in July 2013 with generous funding from the Wolfson Foundation and significant investment from The Open University. An international centre at the cutting edge of practical science teaching and learning, the OSL provides online access to laboratory and field investigations that are authentic, motivating and challenging. Guided by rigorous research, it inspires learners by allowing them access to real data, resulting in authentic discoveries and experiences. Opening up the world of science like never before, the OSL provides a unique platform from which practical science can reach universities, colleges, offices and homes across the globe.

The OSL now forms part of the OpenSTEM Labs which is a suite of remote laboratories.
