Using SmartIR in Science Experiments

SmartIR is a smartphone app that I am developing to support infrared (IR) thermal imaging applications, primarily in the field of science and engineering, based on the FLIR ONE SDK. The development officially kicked off in July 2018. By the end of the month, a rudimentary version, to which I assigned V 0.0.1 (representing approximately 1% of the work that needs to be done for a mature release), has been completed.

Learn plate tectonics with an Earth-like model: Introducing Tectonic Explorer

Tectonic Explorer

We are excited to introduce the *beta version* of Tectonic Explorer, our newest Earth system model, developed by our GEODE project. Tectonic Explorer features a complex system of interacting tectonic plates around an entire planet — in this case a simplified, Earth-like planet. For the first time in K-12 education, students will be able to […]
