Teaching award for “best supporting teaching” by the the “Fachschaft Mathematik/Physik/Informatik” of the RWTH Aachen University

We are especially happy to find that we have been awarded by the students from our own courses. This confirms that our efforts are appreciated by those for whom phyphox was designed. More details about the award from 2018 can be found on the Fachschaft website (in German).


The RWTH Aachen University has established the support program “Exploratory Teaching Space” (ETS), to fund innovative teaching concepts within our university. Through this program, the development of the app has been funded in 2016/2017 as well as a Bluetooth interface in 2017/2018 and distributed experiments in 2018/2019.
The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) supports the project “Lehrerbildung Aachen” (LeBiAC2) of the RWTH Aachen University in the context of their funding program “Qualitätsoffensive Lehrerbildung” (Phase 2). As part of LeBiAC2 we develop and evaluate the use of Bluetooth-based data acquisition by students during their education to become teachers.
With a fellowship for innovations in digital academic teaching, the Stifterband NRW funded in 2017 the development of modular worksheets (in German), which also include phyphox-based experiments.
