An introduction to the PocketLab One, the science lab that fits in the palm of your hand. Includes videos and downloadable resources.


What is PocketLab?

PocketLab is a science lab that fits in the palm of your hand. PocketLab connects with a single button to a smart phone, tablet, Chromebook, or computer and instantly streams data that you can see and record. PocketLab measures motion, acceleration, angular velocity, magnetic field, pressure, altitude, and temperature. Using the PocketLab app, you can easily analyze your data, create graphs, and integrate your data with other software. PocketLab has the same features as lab equipment that costs thousands of dollars but is low cost and intuitive to use. 


What can I do with PocketLab One?

PocketLab turns anybody into a scientist that can explore the world around them through real scientific investigations. Here are just few examples of the hundreds of science activities you can do with PocketLab:

  • Measure the position, velocity, and acceleration of a rubber band racer cart.
  • Discover Newton's Laws of Motion by launching a rocket with a PocketLab payload.
  • Learn about weather patterns by investigating changes in air pressure.
  • Monitor your change in altitude during a hike.
  • Measure the magnetic field generated by an electric current."
