ExpEYES - A Python Powered Open Source Portable Science Lab
ExpEYES ( Experiments for Young Engineers and Scientists) is an Open Hardware and Free Software framework for developing science experiments, classroom demonstrations and projects. It also functions as a test equipment for electronics hobbyists and engineering students.
ExpEYES is portable, expandable and affordable, supporting wide range of experiments from high school to post graduate level. It combines the real-time measurement capability of micro-controllers with the ease and flexibility of Python programming language for data analysis and visualization.
With the objectives of developing affordable laboratory equipment and training science teachers, ExpEYES is from the PHOENIX ((Physics with Home-made Equipment and Innovative Experiments) project of Inter-University Accelerator Centre, New Delhi. It converts your PC into a portable science laboratory.
Objective of the project
An understanding of science and technology is necessary in every students life. The main challenge in the field of science Education at a global level is the declining interest of students into science. Unfortunately the performance of a student is often measured by the ability to memorize than the real understanding. as a result most of them fail to apply what they learn in the classroom to the things they encounter in real life. Students also lose interest because of absence of appropriate motivation and also due to the of lack of equipment.
The key to combating this is the adoption of an inquiry-based, 'learn-by-doing' approach i.e. learning by exploring and experimenting. However, almost everywhere science is mostly taught from the textbooks without giving importance to experiments, partly due to lack of equipment. ExpEYES (Experiments for Young Engineers and Scientists) is the most affordable solution to this problem. ExpEYES brings the ability to perform experiments with reasonable accuracy, opens up an entirely new path for learning science.
ExpEYES now works with Android devices too.The dream of providing every science student his/her own affordable lab has come closer with this new development.
ExpEYES comes with all required software on Fedora and other Gnu/Linux Live Cds.
