Lack of Budget is a barrier to young people learning!

40 per cent of secondary schools state ‘lack of budget’ is a key barrier to using EdTech, according to a survey for the British Educational Suppliers (Besa) – a sharp increase from 14 per cent in 2017.

We are trying to help schools to put digital technology into the hands of young people.

This is a General Science data logger. It is easy to use, comes with 13 sensors built-in and includes GPS.

The software that goes with the Labdisc is free on all platforms. Students are able to log their own data in real-time and see the changes using GPS and Google Maps. Interrogate data inline, table and graph format. Annotate data to show understanding. Export to other tools for presentation.

The Labdisc costs £377.00 plus VAT and delivery. Whilst this is expensive, the device has some high-end functionality and includes delicate instrumentation it is also value for money. We want young people to have access to this type of technology and so we have packaged four devices including external sensors (pH probe) for hire to schools.

So a set of four General Science dataloggers can be hired for a half-term period (notionally 6 weeks) for £377.00 +VAT and delivery. simply go to

We are passionate about technology and we want to help schools with their budget constraints.

We hope you have a lovely Summer break.
