software resources for science and technology education

The newest member of the iLOG family makes the famous features of the Insight iLOG brand available to the BBC micro:bit, turning it into a powerful data-logger.
Sensors: The micro:bit contains sensors for acceleration, magnetic field, temperature and light. iLOG can show data from all these as well as from external sensors connected to the input pins.
Logging:  iLOG collects data from the micro:bit via USB or Bluetooth wireless.  There are several collection modes providing real-time logging (as it happens), remote logging (download data from the micro:bit’s memory), snapshot logging, and timing measurements.
Display: Data shows in a choice of windows simultaneously; Graph, Bar chart, Table and as large digits. Graph axes are easily scaled by stretch,squeeze, scroll and zoom actions.
Analysis: Cursor tools for obtaining values from the graph: Readings, Change, Average, Gradient, Rate of change, Ratio, Area, Time interval.  Curve fitting tools.  Calculation tools to generate customised functions.
Timing: Precision timing facilities for measurements of velocity, acceleration momentum and energy.
Modelling: The unique Insight modelling system for generating data from customised variables and formulae.
Data files: Saving and loading data in a variety of formats including set-up files saving customised screens.
Resources: Scripted experiments and sample data files.

iLOG for micro:bit is available for Windows 10.
