In a festive session of the spring meeting of the Condensed Matter Section of the German Physical Society (DPG) in Dresden, Christoph Stampfer and Sebastian Staacks were awarded the Georg Kerschensteiner Prize for the development of the free app phyphox. The DPG’s Georg Kerschensteiner Award recognizes outstanding achievements in physics didactics or in the teaching of physics.

With phyphox, natural sciences are directly in the hands of learners, teachers, researchers and explorers via smart device sensors. Via wireless connections to microcontrollers, the mobile lab can use virtually any external sensors. Phyphox, cured twice App of the Day (November 13 and February 23), has so far recorded well over three million individual installations and nearly two million volume installations at educational institutions.
