The phyphox team not only provides the app used in (almost) all of our experiments, but also actively supports us in the implementation of our experiments, such as the integration of new sensors.
Most measurements are performed with smartphones (and external sensors), but can also be performed with classic school materials. We publish all experiments in German as well as in English.
All resources published on astro-lab.app are open educational resources and can be downloaded and used for teaching free of charge.
To make it easier to get started and increase understanding, matching explanatory videos and tutorial videos are linked to each experiment.
astro-lab.app is a free physics educational resource with the main topics astronomy and space travel and is mainly aimed at people interested in astronomy as well as teachers and students.
On astro-lab.app, innovative teaching-learning arrangements in the field of astronomy and space travel are offered, such as smartphone experiments, board games, etc., which can be used in class or for homeschooling. Most experiments are available in English as well as in German.
We are always working on new materials to continuously improve our portfolio.
