Physics Wall

Finally w have manged to mount our 3D printed labeno set on the lab wall. The advantages are many, as the lab equipment can be permanently installed, taking very little space eliminating setting up time. Students can now focus on their experiments with what we call a 3D printed stater kit made of a phone[…]

StemKit

My STEM KIT

MySTEMkits is a great 3D printing initiative now on KickStarter – worthy of support. Except for Phones the rest is very similar to our LabenoSet that we launched. I like the way they use pencils. We used rulers and lab stands because all labs have them and they do not suffer from the deficiencies of 3D printing.[…]

Ah….. that noise

Accelerometers are notoriously noisy, as most sensors are, and this inevitably will generate inaccuracies. PhoneLabs is about tool building and we need to figure out how best to deal with noise. There are many ways to do it. Lets get some data I swung my phone around for about 7 seconds and this is what was[…]

Lab Equipment

We are now toying around with ideas for lab equipment. Not in terms of design them from scratch but in terms of “modding” existing old world equipment lying around in most labs. Lab stands fit that bill. So here is our first attempt to build a pendulum and a circular motion machine with both using[…]
