The week long program was called GetSET (Get Science, Engineering, and Technology), was sponsored by the Society for Women Engineers and had activities ranging from programming to visiting Facebook, and a hands-on lab with PocketLab.

Exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in a Bell X-1 aircraft,Felix Baumgartner did too, but not in an aircraft. He did it by jumping out of one. In a state of the art pressure suit, Baumgartner jumped out of a capsule dangling from a helium balloon that had reached the stratosphere, 24 miles from the surface of the Earth. Before deploying his parachute, Baumgartner reached a top speed of 833.9 mph.

Have you ever wondered what happens to your package after you put it in the mail? Does the package ever get hot, cold, wet, turned upside down, dropped off the back of a truck, or bitten by a dog while waiting on your doorstep? 

The PocketLab Team has been brainstorming citizen science experiments that users around the world can investigate with us. Join us in the first ever citizen science project that examines the mysteries of what happens to your package when it goes into the mail!

Starting January 1, 2016 we have found a new international carrier, Globegistics, that is able to dramatically reduce our shipping cost by almost 70%! We are passing that savings entirely on to our customers, and now if you order internationally, we are charging a flat rate of only $8US. 

Globegistics is able to give about the same delivery times for most countries, and the same reliable US Postal Service shipping and tracking.
