Why PocketLab Air?
The PocketLab Air multi-sensor is powerful enough for air quality & climate researchers, yet easy and rugged enough for anyone to use and start collecting data right away.
Air brings together everything a citizen scientist needs in one, durable device. It’s a science lab powerful enough for professional-grade air research that we thought should be compact and user-friendly enough to put the power directly in the hands of the next generation.
Design hundreds of science experiments covering physics, engineering, Earth science, chemistry, and biology. Imagine measuring the air quality of a schoolyard, the lunchroom, and students’ homes, or tracking the changes throughout the year and comparing to historical climate data for any region. Get outside and redefine a walk in the park by watching live data appear on the screen and update as you walk. Grab one for fun, or build a classroom bundle of Air, accessories, and Notebook Pro subscriptions with our pre-built Lesson Library.
Investigate the air quality in any community and produce research-quality results
Technology powerful enough for a pro and user-friendly for anyone
Empower citizen scientists by making climate data personal and involving students in gathering real-world information
Get more done with our no-prep lab solution that combines PocketLab Air with a digital lab Notebook (free or Pro), and the built-in Lesson Library.
Adapt to any classroom -- in-person, hybrid, or remote -- because everything we make is designed wireless and remote-ready from day one.
Save budget by replacing boxes of equipment with this powerful multi-sensor functionality.
Save time on planning and grading. Digging through stacks of paper notebooks isn't always fun, so we built Notebook software, a digital lab notebook where everything lives in the cloud.
Simplify department tech. With PocketLab sensors, everything integrates with the Notebook or Notebook Pro, so once you learn one, you know them all.
Transform classroom management with Notebook or Notebook Pro. Having lessons built into Notebook streamlines planning, and having students use digital lab reports that live in the cloud means easy monitoring of student progress from your single screen, where teachers can even provide real-time lab guidance and feedback as students work.
Stream data in real-time to Chromebook, iPads, and almost any computer, smartphone, or device.
PocketLab Air puts the power in the hands of every citizen scientist who is ready to make a difference through data.

PocketLab is a science learning system.
Sensors + Notebook (Pro) + Lesson Library + ScIC Community
PocketLab sensors do not stand alone. Every sensor is part of the PocketLab learning system, which brings together our sensors, software, lesson library, and ScIC conference. Plus, the whole system scales to fit any class load. Anyone using PocketLab is part of a massive science learning community that is growing every day.
All PocketLab sensors are designed to seamlessly pair with our free Notebook or Notebook Pro software for real-time data visualizations, analysis, and lab reports. Create live, vivid data visualizations. Record and analyze data in real time. Create and share lab reports.
Choose from our teacher-made lesson library full of no-prep labs and projects designed specifically for our sensors and built directly into Notebook and Notebook Pro. The possibilities are endless, and it’s all part of the PocketLab learning system.
Have drawers full of sensors from different companies? No problem. Both Notebook and Notebook Pro can visualize data from practically any sensor. Just export and upload a CSV file of your data and Notebook will automatically create interactive graphs of your measurements.
