Beagle Sense to Donate FREE Educator Kits to Schools Across Canada and USA.
OTTAWA, Nov. 11, 2015 /CNW/ - Ottawa startup Beagle Sense announces a massive contribution to STEM education and innovation by offering its sensors for free to K-12 public and private schools across Canada and the United States.
Beagle Sense is a range of smart, wireless, non-intrusive sensors that, when placed throughout indoor areas, measure the quality of your environment by capturing data on air quality and pressure, humidity, temperature, light, and indoor and outdoor noise levels.
Beagle Sense believes that STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) is important for our future leaders, makers and innovators. Through its Young Innovators Program, Beagle Sense is offering sensors to approximately 150,000 schools across the USA and Canada, which will engage students in STEM learning as active participants in how the sensors collect and process information on the environment around us.
"The idea for Beagle Sense came from our team's fascination with how our indoor environments can affect our health," explains Beagle Sense founder John Criswick. "By working with schools, we are providing an opportunity for teachers to engage and inspire young makers and future innovators by giving them the opportunity to be a part of technological development in action."

Then show of support and spread the word to get your school on board and Beagle Sense will send a package of its full range of 7 sensors plus base station in time for the 2016 school year.
