October 31, 2011 Sanborn, NY – Studica, Inc., the education source for software and technology products, has been designated by National Instruments as an Education Channel Reseller in Europe and North America. “We are pleased with this opportunity to bring National Instruments LabVIEW system design software, Multisim circuit design software, and NI myDAQ hardware to students and secondary schools,” said Studica President & CEO Frank Nanfara. “The NI products revolutionize the method in which engineering and other STEM disciplines can be taught and learned.”
To help students to transcend textbooks and engineer like the professionals, National Instruments has developed comprehensive teaching solutions that deliver engaging real-world learning experiences. The NI educational offering is an integrated, reconfigurable software and hardware platform that uses the concept of graphical system design to visually depict ideas and produce a working system. This approach allows students to focus on solving an application using the same technology that drives industry-standard tools.
NI myDAQ hardware and LabVIEW and Multisim software together create a simple yet powerful platform for giving students real-world lab experiences. NI myDAQ (starting at $175 USD) is a low-cost portable data acquisition (DAQ) device that uses software tools based on LabVIEW to replicate thousands of dollars worth of instrumentation, making it possible for students to measure and analyze real-world signals with the same tools used by professionals. NI myDAQ is designed specifically for students and is ideal for exploring electronics and taking sensor measurements. Combined with LabVIEW Student Edition (starting at $20 USD) and Multisim, students have an interactive environment to explore and visualize circuit behavior using powerful simulation and analysis, then can analyze and process acquired signals and control simple processes anytime, anywhere, all on one hardware/software platform. For high school, Studica also provides teachers with the following offerings: the NI myDAQ STEM Suite, the NI Science & Engineering Kit, or the NI Circuits & Electronics Kit.
Additional support is provided through courseware on www.ni.com/courseware for collegiate educators and at www.K12Lab.com for secondary school teachers. These resources give educators the confidence of knowing that their courses are engaging and relevant, and make the best use of classroom time with NI teaching solutions.
Studica is the education source for software and technology products. Utilizing a focused approach, Studica has outside and inside sales personnel, and an intuitive e-commerce site, an informative blog, Facebook and Twitter feeds that work effectively together to serve the education community. Serving local and world education markets, Studica has offices in the US, Canada, the UK, Brazil, Denmark, and Sweden, with more planned in the near future.
