At last week’s Gala dinner for the UK E-Learning award competition, which took place at the central London Marriot Hotel, Globisens were announced as first place winner. The award was accepted by the company’s UK partner Mike Carter from Tyncan.
The Labdisc has been shortlisted out of 200 entries for the 2013 E-Learning Awards in the category of "Most Innovative New Learning Hardware or Software Product". The award recognizes products that revolutionize the way learning is designed, delivered, supported, enhanced or managed.
Middle school students from the "Get Real Environmental Action Camp" use the DataHub at Ontario Beach Park to test their lake water for bacteria. Aided by University of Rochester Chemistry and Biology graduate students, the 6th and 7th graders made a hypothesis about the water health at their local beach.
The Labdisc fulfills the Globisens vision of making science learning easy and convenient with an all-in-one wireless science laboratory. This month the company launched a new line of key external sensors whose purpose is to broaden the possible experiment range, while still maintaining the consolidated all-in-one Labdisc concept.
Phase changes in Chemistry impacts a number of industries from transport, sustainable energy to cutting edge technologies such as fire fighters’ protective clothing. Using any Labdisc model and external temperature probe, students can relate temperature variations and heat transfer to better understanding how kinetic energy increases as water is transformed from solid to gas.
