LabPi: A digital low-cost measuring station

Low-cost, high-tech. LabPi is a digital measuring station for use in schools, student laboratories, university teaching and research. By combining a powerful station with precise sensors and innovative technology, new teaching-learning opportunities for STEM education 4.0 arise.

One for all

Numerous sensors are available for LabPi. Each of them enables new possibilities for quantitative measurement acquisition and can be used in all STEM subjects. And: All sensors can be freely combined with each other and acquired simultaneously.

STEM Education: innovative teaching formats

LabPi makes the tremendous potential of digitization accessible for STEM education. Wireless networking with the cloud makes it possible to combine the measured values of several learning groups at the touch of a finger. And if 63.731 measured values can be discussed faster and better, more real learning time remains for the experiments and their evaluation.
