CTL Webinar: PocketLab, the Science Lab that Fits in your Pocket

CTL Webinar: PocketLab, the Science Lab that Fits in your Pocket

CTL brings a variety of educational software to our Chromebook deployments. One of the longest-running partnerships has been with PocketLab. Over the past few years, PocketLab continues to grow and expand their line of classroom-ready Science Labs that fit in the palm of your hand. Expanding upon the original PocketLab comes PocketLab Voyager and PocketLab Weather.

Maybe you’re familiar with PocketLab or perhaps this is the first time you’re hearing about this awesome STEM-learning device, but we wanted to give you a rundown of all the who, whats, and hows of the PocketLab process.

Please also join us for the June 13th webinar with Robert from PocketLab.

What is PocketLab and how can it help you in your classroom?

PocketLab is a wireless scientific sensor that measures motion, acceleration, angular velocity, magnetic field, pressure, altitude, and temperature! All that in a device that fits in the palm of your hand, inside a soccer ball to measure velocity, on a test helmet to measure impact, and even on a kite to measure altitude and temperature. Imagine the possibilities for your students to utilize such a cool device on their Chromebooks without needing thousands of dollars worth of lab equipment! PocketLab brings real life and real-time STEM learning into your classrooms.


How to Access the PocketLab Web App and How to Connect Your PocketLab

PocketLab connects directly to the PocketLab Web App which is available on iOS, Chromebook, Android, Mac OSX, and Windows and to your device via BlueTooth 4.0. You can see real-time monitoring and results right within the PocketLab Dashboard.

Getting Started Guides and Lesson Plan Resources

On top of PocketLab being a great tech tool for STEM education, they’ve also amassed a huge support community of teachers found on their website. Here educators will find a large variety of lesson plans like Isaac Newton and the 3rd Law of Motion and How Does an Accelerometer Work, help forums, FAQ’s device updates, and more.

PocketLab One is just the beginning; PocketLab Weather is a rugged and portable weather center you can take anywhere and PocketLab Voyager is an all-in-one science lab that explores motion, weather, and more.
