What would you do with a laboratory in the palm of your hand?
We believe anyone can be a scientist. PocketLab enables students, educators, and makers to explore the world around them. PocketLab brings science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to life like never before possible.
Measure data with:
• iPad, iPhone, iPod
• Android phones, tablets
• Windows PCs, 2-in-1s, tablets
Integrate learning through:
• Scratch Programming
• Google Drive
• Microsoft Excel
Make experiments like:
• Earthquake Seismometer
• Magnetic Minesweeper
• Soup Can Race
• Ideal Gas Law
PocketLab connects with a single button to a smart phone, tablet, Chromebook, or computer and instantly streams data that you can see and record. PocketLab measures motion, acceleration, angular velocity, magnetic field, pressure, altitude, and temperature. Using the PocketLab app, you can easily analyze your data, create graphs, and integrate your data with other software. PocketLab has the same features as lab equipment that costs thousands of dollars but is low cost and intuitive to use.
How it Works
Free fall with
Science World Canada uses PocketLab with student field trips to teach lessons about Felix Baumgartner’s record free-fall jump.
Teacher Ryan Hollister uses a homemade Earthquake machine to demonstrate and measure forces associated with different fault lines.
Build your own seismometer to measure ground vibrations using a heavy magnet, a stand, and the PocketLab’s magnetometer.
Physics of a Pirouette
Use PocketLab to learn how to turn torque into the spinning of a pirouette with a lesson from a PocketLab user.
