Touring a virtual lab

Have you ever wondered what’s inside a research lab? Do you wish you could go on a guided lab tour?

Laboratories are cool, fascinating spaces. They are also busy, can smell a bit funky, and are full of chemicals and other hazards. Because of this, it’s tricky for us to let many people into our labs in real life.

Thankfully, though, Google is here to help. We’ve created a lab tour on Google Street View, so you can have an explore at your own pace! We’ve added some useful facts to it too, which you should be able to find on the tour. See if you can discover our safety gear, some of our robots, and a few over-achieving members of staff who seem to be working in virtually every lab!
