Almost exactly two years after our first million, we have now reached three of them in January. One driving force apparently are tablets in educational institutions, which are finally counted for these numbers since September.
Thank you very much to all ambassadors, translators, supporters, feedback and ideas providers and the users of our app. We are looking forward to further improve phyphox and the possibilities of smartphone experiments with you.
The Stifterverband‘s anniversary initiative “Wirkung hoch 100” (Impact to the power of 100) is entering its third and final funding phase, and we are part of it. Ten of the more than 500 projects originally applying have been selected in a multi-stage process since the fall of 2020 in search of the best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of the future. They will now receive a total of one million euros in funding. The ten finalists will present their proposed solutions to challenges in science, education and innovation to all interested parties in November 2021, in order to make them more visible and even more effective through networking with other stakeholders. We very much look forward to the upcoming further collaboration with the other wonderful initiatives.
Some documents on our CO₂ monitor have received an update and we have added an experiment description and a corresponding video for photosynthesis. These are only available in German at the moment. If there is enough interest, we try to find some time (or volunteers) for translations.
