A review of Vernier’s Go!Link and Hand Dynamometer was recently featured in the NSTA Blog. In the article, reviewer Edwin Christmann provides step-by-step instructions on how to use the data-collection technologies, highlights their key features, and explains how they result in “meaningful scientific engagement.” In the review, he goes on to say:
“Once again, Vernier has developed a device that can be used to integrate the NRC Standards (i.e. Standards A & E) and shows students how using the proper scientific tools to gather data can be both relevant and exciting.”
The Go!Link USB is a single-channel interface that connects most Vernier sensors—including the Hand Dynamometer—to a computer or Chromebook USB port. The Hand Dynamometer measures grip and pinch strength and can be used to perform muscle fatigue studies with students from middle school through high school.
