Researchers at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute (ABI) have created a low-cost ‘lab in the pocket’ for schoolchildren.

A new technology aimed at sparking and nurturing scientifically inquiring minds, allows them to take scientific measurements of the world around and within them, such as the quality of the water they drink, the air they breathe, the pace of their beating hearts and more.

It’s called the Kiwrious kit, and was designed by Associate Professor Suranga Nanayakkara and his team at the Augmented Human Lab (AHL) at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute (ABI), University of Auckland. They have also collaborated with Associate Professor Dawn Garbett from the Faculty of Education and Social Work.
