Boxlight Labdisc for Inquiry-Based Learning in the Science Classroom

Looking for new tools for your science classroom? Interested in inquiry-based learning this school year? You’ll want to check out the Labdisc portable lab from the folks at Boxlight. Designed to help facilitate inquiry-based learning experiences, this tool can be used in a variety of science classrooms. From biology and chemistry to physics, environmental science, and geography there are lots of ways to support your curriculum goals and design engaging learning experiences with this tool.

Boxlight Labdisc for Inquiry-Based Learning

BoxLight’s STEM science lab lets teachers take the science classroom anywhere. The Labdisc portable lab helps students connect and engage with science from both inside and outside of the classroom. Take a look at the video below to see Labdisc in action – you’ll see students gathering data in different spaces to bring back to classroom discussions.


In this tool, there’s a wireless, compact Labdisc data logger for every science domain. It includes up to 15 built-in sensors to gather data for the science classroom and even fits in the palm of a student’s hand. What I like about this tool is that it lets students gather their own data to examine and analyze instead of using a data set in a textbook. This makes the process more meaningful and relevant for students.

The Labdisc from Boxlight includes up to 150 hours of battery life. So it can be used both inside and outside of the classroom. If you and your students take part in long-term experiments such as plant growth, weather change, and pollution, this device will definitely come in handy. There is zero setup time, automatic sensor testing, and calibration. You don’t have to worry about allocating time to getting started with a new tool.
