The PocketLab Voyager is an all-in-one science lab that is capable enough for a professional engineer and simple enough for a 4th grade student. The Voyager can detect and measure multiple forms of sensor data including motion, light, magnetic fields, and weather. You can also attach an external temperature probe as well but one is not included in this kit. The Voyager has been designed to work with either the PocketLab or VelocityLab apps by streaming real time data from it's multiple sensors to your iOS, Android, ChromeBook, or Windows device where you can view, graph, record, and save data as a spreadsheet. This version of the PocketLab is great for physical science, weather and climate studies, engineering projects and more.
The PocketLab Voyager includes an optical range finder that works from as low as 10cm and all the way up to 2 meters, and is perfect for measuring the speed and position of moving objects like physics carts or falling objects. Additionally, the PocketLab Voyager has on board memory to store 30,000 data points. This can be used for situations where your device is out of range of the module like weather balloons, high altitude rockets, underwater devices, or installed at a remote weather station.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Noob - Programming will be limited to basic drag and drop interfaces like ModKit or Scratch. You won't be writing code, but you will still need to understand some basics of interfacing with hardware. If you?re just using a sensor, it's output is analog.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.
