Fourier Education Wins 2014 Bett Awards

Fourier Education is proud to announce that their einstein™ Tablet+ has won the Digital Devices category at the 2014 Bett Awards. Serving as a mobile science learning workstation, the einsteinTM Tablet+ is a revolutionary new science exploration tablet for students in grades K-12.

The Bett Awards recognize the world’s most innovative and inspiring educational technologies and serve as an integral part of the Bett Show, the world’s largest event for learning technology that is held annually in London. Fourier Education continues to demonstrate its award winning einstein™ Tablet+ at booth B166 throughout this year’s show, which runs through January 25.

“We are delighted to be recognized by the best minds in the educational technology industry and thrilled to win this prestigious award that strongly affirms our mission,” said Ken Zwiebel, chief executive officer of Fourier Education. “We built this revolutionary digital science tablet understanding that the earlier we can excite our kids to the wonders of STEM, the more they will cultivate a passion for these fields, and the better they will perform in these areas throughout their schooling and careers.”

Fourier Education’s einstein™ Tablet+ not only acts as a familiar platform for teachers and students but it also includes everything teachers need to get their students actively engaged with real-world, hands-on science learning. The einstein™ Tablet+ is pre-loaded with multimedia experiments for biology, chemistry, environmental science, human physiology, and physics. Teachers and students can also easily create their own experiments on the tablet with the einstein™ Activity Maker.

Bett judges commented on Fourier Education’s win saying, “einsteinTM Science Learning Platform is a very good product which is ideally suited to supporting the new national curriculum. We like the design, branding and functionality and think the product is durable and robust. We particularly like the way it encourages students to interact and work collaboratively.”

The einstein™ Tablet+ includes eight built-in sensors that are commonly used in standard science curricula for students and teachers to conduct experiments. They include Humidity, UV, Heart Rate, Temperature, Light, Accelerometer, Microphone, and GPS. Teachers and students can also add an additional eight external sensors to run more complex and creative experiments.

In addition, the einstein™ Tablet+ also comes with MiLAB™ data analysis app, which allows students to easily collect, interpret, and understand data from their experiments. The tablet also features two built-in cameras, an HDMI port to connect to a projector or monitor, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and access to Google Drive and Google Play in addition to the full functionality of a standard Android device, supporting all applications compatible with Android OS.
