PocketLab: Better Sensors, Now Measuring Air Quality
A few years ago, we showcased Clifton Roozeboom’s PocketLab – a small, rugged wireless sensor platform that could easily collect a suite of common measurements while simultaneously reporting to a device for data visualization and analysis. A few years later, with newer and less expensive sensors, PocketLab has developed a novel product that can now measure air quality. Called PocketLab Air, this wireless device contains six built-in sensors for measuring Carbon Dioxide, Ozone, Particulate Matter, Temperature, Barometric Pressure, Humidity, Dew Point, and Heat Index. Listen to the show to learn how your students can use the family of PocketLab sensors to build science experiments for exploring even more of the world around them.
