Meet Notebook Pro + OpenSciEd
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.
PocketLab Notebook is a powerful, full-featured, all-in-one digital lab book and lesson library. Anytime, anywhere, teachers and students can collect, visualize, and analyze live experiment data in a way that makes labs come alive.
With Notebook, teachers can create digital lab reports and assign them to students in minutes. Start with a template or build your own from scratch, import existing lessons or other documents, pull in videos and images, add PocketLab data, questions and instructions for students, PhET simulations, data tables, and more.
OpenSciEd offers NGSS-aligned, locally adaptable, full-course curriculum that supports equitable science learning. It consists of phenomenon-based, three-dimensional units that prioritize student coherence and equitable science sensemaking.
The units are developed with teacher and student voices from across the country informing the selection of the phenomena and the storyline of the unit. Throughout the units, students develop their ability to solve problems, ask and answer questions, and argue from evidence.
PocketLab Notebook Pro + OpenSciEd Curriculum
With Notebook Pro + OpenSciEd teachers now have an all-in-one, flexible solution that combines a full middle school science curriculum, hands-on labs and lessons, and a digital lab notebook where you can assign lessons and monitor student progress as they collect, measure and analyze data.

Backed By Research
PocketLab Notebook was developed through grants with the National Science Foundation and the Institute of Education Sciences at the Department of Education and in partnership with WestEd Research.
We piloted Notebook beta with hundreds of middle school students to see if it increased their engagement in the NGSS science and engineering practices. In preliminary feedback, 71% of the 350 student participants responded that they actually enjoyed the lab report process while using the PocketLab Notebook!
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.
