iLabRS is a remote laboratory developed in Telecom BCN, the Telecom and Electronics Engineering School of the UPC with the key participation of a Secondary Education Technology teacher. Students and teachers can access to real experiments in the electronics and physics areas using a web browser. The remote experiments have been designed to partially cover the technology curriculum in the last two high school years with a triple goal: (1) to enrich the set of laboratory experiences available in High Schools, (2) to provide a clear example of the possibilities of internet-based technologies and (3) to promote the interaction between University and Secondary Education. Currently, there are 13 different experiments available. A pilot evaluation experience was carried out, in collaboration with 7 High Schools and around 100 students participating. In the experience assessment, the students gave a mark of 3.8/5 and the teachers of 4.4/5.
