PocketLab Air

PocketLab Air is an all-in-one science lab for investigating climate change and air pollution in your environment. With PocketLab Air can measure:

  • Carbon dioxide
  • Ozone
  • Particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5, PM10)
  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Barometric pressure
  • Light

We've designed PocketLab Air to be capable enough for a climate and air quality researchers but simple enough for a 4th grade student learning about Earth science.


PocketLab Air

PocketLab Air is a wireless sensor that sends data to the PocketLab App for exploring the world and investigating air quality in your community. We believe anyone can be a scientist, and we believe science should be fun and engaging.

PocketLab Air Sensor Functions

All the sensor functions are integrated into a small, rugged, and portable sensor device that can be used to go out and investigate air pollution and climate. You can stream data from all of the sensors simultaneously to the PocketLab app and visualize the data in real-time.  

  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Particulate Matter
    • PM 1.0
    • PM 2.5
    • PM 10
  • Ozone
  • Air Quality Index (AQI) Score
  • Weather Conditions
    • Ambient Temperature
    • Humidity
    • Barometric Pressure
    • Dew Point
    • Heat Index
