Students of the NASA-funded afterschool NOVAS program in collaboration with Hi-Impact Consultancy in the UK recently launched a Labdisc with a high altitude weather balloon to the edge of space. The students' mission was to take pictures of Earth from space.
For Chemistry, this Titration experiment introduces students to the common laboratory method of quantitative chemical analysis that is used to determine the unknown concentration of a solution using the Labdisc pH sensor.
Introducing the new external magnetic field sensor this Physics experiment explores the Biot-Savart Law in measuring the magnetic field intensity variations around an inducting coil.
Another new experiment for Physics investigates Hooke's Law with the Dymo Wireless Force and Accelerometer sensor, studying the linear relationship of F = -kX.
Christopher Maxwell, STEM Product Manager at Edit Microsystems visited a rural South African school where 800 students must share a single science lab equipped with 11 computers. The school invited Mr. Maxwell to provide 11th grade learners, struggling with complicated science concepts, with some Labdisc inspiration. Mr.
