Why PocketLab G-Force?

PocketLab G-Force is everything you need to bring physics concepts to life in a car small enough to fit on a Hot Wheels™ track. Measure velocity, position, g-force, rotation and direction using one device and instantly track, measure and analyze the data of any motion experiment you can imagine. Use the G-force accessories to create crash simulations or see the effects of added weight or wind in real-time. It’s serious science with the fun built in.

  • Speed Racer: How fast are you going? PocketLab G-Force is equipped with advanced sensor technology that allows it to measure the speed and distance traveled just like a real car. The speedometer data transmits wirelessly to a phone, tablet, or computer in real-time.

  • Plays Well with Others: PocketLab G-Force can race through HotWheels™ and other tracks for loops, roller coasters, and high-banked curves. 

  • High Tech: Crash cars together and measure the g-forces of a collision or a turn in the track. PocketLab G-Force has an onboard inertial measurement unit (IMU) for advanced measurements, the same kind of technology used for autonomous driving.

  • Smooth Ride: G-Force is equipped with micro-ball-bearings, precision machined stainless steel axles, and fine-tuned mechanics.

  • Get Creative: You can attach bumpers, parachutes, and sails or fill the internal storage compartment with varying weights to the G-Force car to be creative with how you explore science.

  • Level Up: PocketLab G-Force is sophisticated enough to investigate college-level science concepts and simple enough to teach physics in elementary school. You can experiment with simple harmonic motion or three-dimensional kinematics with something that looks like a toy car.

  • Love Learning: Science + Play = Life-long Learning

ALIGNMENT TO NGSS, PHYSICS STANDARDS

G-force includes everything you need to teach seven NGSS Middle School Physical Science performance expectations, in addition to numerous high school physics activities, while integrating all four Engineering Design standards.

Some of the physics concepts covered by PocketLab G-Force:

  1. Position, velocity, and acceleration

  2. Energy and momentum

  3. Elastic and inelastic collisions

  4. Forces acting at a distance

  5. Energy transfer

  6. Newton's Laws of Motion

  7. Harmonic motion

Ready-to-use Lessons in PocketLab Notebook

PocketLab Notebook is a full-featured, all-in-one digital science platform. The Lesson Library in Notebook offers customizable, NGSS-aligned lessons and labs for every science classroom. Check out these lessons you can use with PocketLab G-Force.

 

PocketLab is a science learning system.

Notebook (Pro) + Curriculum + Sensors + ScIC Community

PocketLab sensors do not stand alone. Every sensor is part of the PocketLab learning system, which brings together curriculum, software, sensors, and the ScIC unconference. Plus, the whole system is customizable to fit any classroom empowering you to teach science your way.

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 curricula options and 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.
