PocketLab

PocketLab

With PocketLab Voyager, you can collect scientific data like never before, data that can be used to improve TeacherGeek designs or learn science in the context of engineering. PocketLab Voyager is an all-in-one science lab that is capable enough for a professional engineer and simple enough for a 4th grade student.

With a PocketLab Voyager, you can measure and graph:

  • The acceleration of a Rubber Band Racer
  • The velocity of a Sail Car
  • The magnetic field of an Electromagnetic Crane
  • The altitude of a Wind Lift
  • The angular velocity of a Gear
  • And much more!
