ExpEYES : Pocket Science Lab
With the objectives of developing affordable laboratory equipment and training science teachers, ExpEYES is from the PHOENIX project of Inter-University Accelerator Centre, New Delhi. It is an Open Hardware and Free Software framework for developing science experiments, classroom demonstrations and projects without getting in to the details of electronics or computer programming. It converts your PC into a portable science laboratory.
ExpEYES can be used to perform a large number of experiments. For example, the device can be used to study electromagnetic induction, interference of sound waves, Lissajous Figures, to measure gravity by time of flight, alongside many other applications. Concepts like Lissajous Figures and Electromagnetic induction are quite difficult for most students. ExpEYES allows the study of fast changing phenomena and is an effective tool for exploring electromagnetic phenomena and the laws of electromagnetic induction—namely, Faraday’s law and Lenz’s law. The ability to capture real-time graphs offers the important benefit for students to better visualize the associated phenomena and develop a deeper understanding of it.
In this session, participants will be able to have hands on experience with ExpEYES. They will be able to do many experiments with the help of GUI's available for different experiments and also learn to fetch and plot data by writing simple python programs.
It will be great to engage science and engineering students, teachers and python enthusiasts with ExpEYES running on awesome fedora.
