Our project explored how this pandemic has impacted laboratory classes at WPI. We aimed to understand and analyze student perceptions and faculty experiences of online labs. We grouped the classes into chemistry, physics, and engineering and investigated the ability to learn material, teamwork, focus, and motivation. Chemistry classes had a relatively positive response to these variables, specifically in learning material and teamwork. Physics classes also had a relatively positive response to all variables, specifically in learning material and focus. Engineering classes had a negative response to every variable. Our recommendation for WPI, if they use a phased reopening, would be to give preference to students in higher level classes to have opportunities for in-person labs.
