Capturing Monarch Metamorphosis in Logger Pro

Ben Carter, a 12-year-old from Nashville, TN, captured a beautiful time-lapse video of a monarch caterpillar pupating into a chrysalis using Logger Pro and a ProScope HR camera (order code BD-HRB, $275).

After planting milkweed obtained from www.livemonarch.com, the monarch caterpillars began showing up in their yard. Ben used the 1-10X lens on a ProScope HR digital USB camera connected to a laptop computer running Logger Pro to capture this video, then shared his results with us. Show it to your own students, or let it inspire you to take your own unique video.
