FIZZIQ - Tablet / smartphone application

FizziQ, a free application that transforms any tablet or smartphone into a portable laboratory to develop active science practice. 
 


 

FIZZIQ APPLICATION OVERVIEW

Transform your tablet / smartphone into a portable laboratory!

Smartphones and tablets are now part of the student's daily environment. However, they are often limited to their usual uses, even though they are equipped with numerous sensors and processors that are particularly well suited to experimental sciences to be carried out in the classroom or at home.  It is with this in mind that the La main à la pâte Foundation has joined forces with the French startup Trapeze.digital, which has developed an application that takes advantage of the sensors and the ergonomics of these digital media in order to promote the scientific approach of middle and high school students.


Appropriate scientific concepts, exchange, share

This new application, free of charge and without personal data storage, significantly extends the functionalities of existing apps thanks to a simple, modern and attractive interface allowing the student to experimentally appropriate concepts related to sound, light, movement... It allows the sending of individual reports, the exchange of results between students and with the teacher, and the archiving of observations as well as their analysis with office software. Finally, thanks to the sharing of protocols, this application also allows the educational community to create a library of royalty-free experiments.

USING THE FIZZIQ APPLICATION IN THE CLASSROOM

Sound processing

Using the FizziQ Sound Level Meter, this challenge allows you to understand how the sound level varies as a function of the distance between the sound source and receiver. It is also an opportunity to work on sound insulation and many other extensions are proposed. ....
 

With this challenge, students discover or use the relationship between the period and frequency of a sound signal. It is also an opportunity to explore the history of music by studying three tuning forks from different periods. As always, many extensions are proposed, including for Science Teaching at the high school. Additional downloads : 440 Pitch  / Philharmonic Pitch / Mozart Pitch
 

With this challenge, the pupils approach the notion of sound frequency in relation to the pitch of different sounds (which can be created if necessary in the application tools). Also on the menu are numerous extensions and links with other disciplines. Perhaps the opportunity to tune or even create a musical instrument?
 

This challenge tackles the notion of timbre and the richness of a sound, it easily complements the other two... but once again, many other educational paths are proposed to you!
 

This challenge will allow you to simply measure the speed of sound with your students by making them aware of the accuracy of their measurements.
 

 


 

Light treatment

With the Fizziq luxmeter, this challenge makes it possible to study the capacity of certain objects to more or less diffuse the light emitted from a primary source. This challenge also provides an opportunity to raise awareness of road safety and in particular to study the role of the famous "yellow waistcoat".


 

Studying the movement

This challenge makes it possible, using the compass or possibly the luxmeter, of FizziQ, to check that a movement is straight.


 

Signals

  • [Science challenge for students] Signals and information (Communicating in MORSE)

This challenge allows students, using various "FizziQ" measuring devices, to create a remote information exchange device in MORSE.
