LEARN ANYTHING, EVERYWHERE
Trimontana enables hands-on learning by developing experimental kits, custom software, and teaching material which can be used by students in any physical setting, even at home.
STUDENT SPECTROMETER KIT
An optical spectrometer kit, which allows students to explore the interaction between light and matter by performing chemical analyses.
WHAT YOU GET
All components and instructions for students to assemble a simple lab spectrometer from sub-modules and connect it to a Smartphone or computer for data collection
Licence to a software package for calibration of the spectrometer, reading-out of data and to perform data analysis
Lab manual with experimental modules and video lectures that guide students from simple physical concepts to sophisticated spectroscopic experiments and data analysis
On campus or at home
“The spectrometer kit provided a comprehensive hands-on spectroscopy experience for my Instrumental Methods of Analysis class. With students working from their homes throughout NYC and beyond, we assembled spectrometer hardware, interfaced our instruments with computers, and collected real spectroscopic data. I was impressed by how engaged the students were, and with the quality of data they produced.”
Prof. J. Deiner, CUNY, New York
Trimontana is an educational technology company that enables hands-on STEM learning by developing instrument kits, custom software, and data analysis tools which students can use in any physical setting, even at home.
Founders Sven Kelling (Ph.D, Physics), Klaus Wiehler (Eng.D., Electrical Engineering), and Jay Deiner (Ph.D., Chemistry) bring together over 50 years of experience in development of scientific instruments, entrepreneurship, and college teaching.
Trimontana’s first product is a computer-interfaced visible light spectrometer that students assemble from component parts. While Trimontana was founded in response to an urgent need to deliver sophisticated yet cost efficient instruments to remote students, observed improvements in the level of student engagement and depth of learning make it apparent that the kit-based approach to teaching scientific instrumentation and data analysis has value in all course delivery modalities.
