Myriad Sensors, Inc., working with Google to develop PocketLab support for the Science Journal Android App
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - May 20, 2016 - PRLog -- Myriad Sensors, Inc., the maker of PocketLab educational sensors, is working with Google's Making & Science initiative to support wirelessly streaming real time PocketLab sensor data to the Science Journal Android app. PocketLab is a wireless multi-sensor for engaging in hands-on science learning. All PocketLab users will be able to use their devices with the Science Journal digital science notebook. Timing for the support of Science Journal is fall 2016.
"We're happy to be working with PocketLab on sensors that could augment Science Journal," said Jen Phillips of Google's Making & Science team. "We like PocketLab because it's easy to use and can help inspire future scientists and makers."
Myriad Sensors has sold thousands of PocketLabs in over 40 countries since introducing on Kickstarter in July of last year. Fully loaded with five embedded sensors, PocketLab collects and transmits experimental data in real-time to tablets, smartphones, Chromebooks, and PCs. Attach PocketLab to a rocket and measure launch acceleration, put it inside a football and measure the angular velocity of a spiral throw, take it on a long hike and measure changes in altitude - with PocketLab science exploration is endless.
"Learning through hands-on activities dramatically enhances science understanding. We designed PocketLab for intuitive use all the way from middle school science classes to graduate level engineering courses," said Clifton Roozeboom, CEO and founder of Myriad Sensors. "If students can visualize how physics concepts are at work in fun activities, they can see the relevance and meaning to STEM education."
PocketLab is being adopted rapidly because it is the first such tool that combines five independent sensors into a small, lightweight package, with one button operation, and does this at a cost that is ten times less than competitive sensor bundles.
"PocketLab enables intuitive exploration of science concepts in the real world and lowers technological barriers for using science equipment," said Dave Bakker, COO and co-founder of Myriad Sensors. "This gives more students, makers, and explorers the ability to use state-of-the-
