With the current situation, many Scienteens Lab workshops have been cancelled. Nonetheless, the team is busy developing new workshops for the next school year, as well as new offers for teacher training. Next Wedneday, a first online webinar will be organised in collaboration with IFEN. This new interactive format dedicated to physics teachers will explore the potential of the smartphone as a tool for online education. Entitled “Physics in the living room with Phyphox”, it is now open for registration!

During this online workshop, David Kieffer, member of the Scienteens Lab team, will showcase how to use diverse sensors in a smartphone and the Phyphox app for online education in physics. The workshop will start with a presentation of the sensors in smartphones and a review of the possibilities and limitations of the phyphox app. Then concrete applications and examples of experiments that can be carried out at home with household items and a smartphone will be demonstrated. Participants will have the opportunity to test measurements during the workshop and discuss upsides and downsides during a Q&A session.

To know more and register.

For a sneak peek at the workshop’s content or to take a deep dive in Phyphox by yourself, a YouTube video is available online. It gives an overview of the different experiments that can be done with the application.
