Students of Physics Education UNY Develop Virtual Dynamic Electricity Laboratory

Four physics education students from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Yogyakarta State University have developed a virtual dynamic electricity laboratory that can be used as a learning tool for science subjects in junior high schools. The Mother's Hope team consists of Taufiq Bayu Nur Rahmat, Cahyaningrum Solehati, Saadah Vidaroini and Salwa Talitha Zabrina with supervisor Dr Riki Perdana, M.Pd. The Virtual Laboratory Media, which is competing in the 2024 Student Digital Innovation Competition (LIDM) Division 2 Educational Digital Learning Innovation (IPDP), uses Scratch to create a dynamic virtual electrical laboratory. 

Concerns about limited laboratory equipment, especially in schools in remote areas of Indonesia, encouraged the Mother's Hope team to create virtual learning media for dynamic electrical laboratories. It is hoped that the created virtual laboratory can become a medium for learning physics, especially dynamic electricity material in junior high schools. It is hoped that this learning medium will solve the problem of limited laboratory equipment. 

The results of the development of virtual learning media for dynamic electricity laboratory by these four physics education students passed the final selection for the 2024 Student Digital Innovation Competition on 9-13 June 2024 at IPB University, Bogor, which was organised by the Indonesian Talent Development Center (BPTI) National Achievement Center (Puspresnas ) - Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology (Kemdikbud Ristek) of the Republic of Indonesia.
