The PocketLab TurboTrack
The TurboTrack is a physics playground for building roller coasters, ramps, and crash barriers to do hands-on science experiments. Using Hot Wheels track and PocketLab track connectors, the TurboTrack allows students to creatively investigate classic concepts in force, motion, energy, momentum, engineering, and more.
All Aboard intelino!
That's right--you can now put the Voyager/Intelino lessons developed to good use in the classroom! The "intelino® smart train" ($99.95) was launched in the United States on September 10, 2019. It is available in all US Apple Stores and at apple.com. In addition Amazon has units availa
Grade 5 students at Saint Andrew’s School caught wind of startling air pollution statistics during their studies which inspired them to take action and make a difference in their community. With a little help from Upper School Math teacher, Jim Scheidegger, as well as a Stanford professor and COO of a company in Silicon Valley, Ashley Egbert, Eli Cornell, Keely McGahee, and David Capeti went to work on a groundbreaking project that measured air quality in Boca Raton.
The Robinson Nature Center is an 18-acre, publicly-owned nature center that hosts 420 groups every year in Maryland in their 23,000 ft2 platinum LEED-certified facility. It was founded in 2009 following the wishes of James and Anne Robinson--who had previously lived on the land. They now have a new activity, which features the PocketLab Air, called Air Quality Outreach.
When it comes to climate change, there are many resources out there. However, most are designed for the public’s use worldwide and are often limited to one perspective; ignoring the arguments against climate change. The Teacher-Friendly Guide to Climate Change stands apart from these others in that it:
Focuses in on climate change impacts in the US

We've turbocharged some of the most classic (boring?) physics experiments with the brand new PocketLab TurboTrack. It's a fast, fun, physics playground for hands-on science.
Globally, seven million premature deaths each year result from air pollution (WHO, 2012). Recent air quality events such as the forest fires in Western North America and the extreme smog conditions in China emphasizes that air pollution is an important current issue for individuals globally. Your neighbour to the north, Canada, has recently had widespread forest fires throughout the west coast as well as serious air pollution events due to industry.
