Motivation for the Workshop

Setting up classroom experiments is labor and time intensive, but MobLab can do it easily and quickly for class sizes from a dozen to thousands of students simultaneously. After the experiment, the results, along with detailed graphs and statistics, are immediately available for a smooth Integration into the lecture.
