The number of things we can measure in this world is endless. Whether it be the differences between two objects or how one thing will affect the other, the ability to make these connections can help us to understand the world more.

But doing so isn’t always easy.

Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed the Go Forth and Measure project. The project is part of Course 2.671 (Measurement and Instrumentation) according to the university.

“The goal of 2.671 is to empower students with a set of tools that allows them to measure pretty much anything,” explains Ian Hunter, the George N. Hatsopoulos Professor in Thermodynamics and the instructor in charge of 2.671 during the fall term.
