“Students using data logging probes along with the Lab Quest software allows to teachers to plan lessons that make abstract ideas concrete and enable students to access complex and interesting science in ways that were previously unable to.”

Stephen Daly, science consultant at The British International School, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

“In summary, the LabQuest 2 from Vernier is an outstanding tool to engage students in scientific inquiry. In my opinion, its reasonable price and ease of use make the LabQuest 2 a valuable tool for students conducting scientific investigations. It can help motivate them toward greater science achievement. If you’re interested in a versatile and cost-effective tool that is user friendly, look no further than Vernier’s LabQuest 2.”

“The main advantages of the LabQuest 2 compared to our older data logging equipment are its portability, simplicity and ease of use. It does not require considerable effort to plan lessons using the equipment and the pupils are able to use in almost instinctively. There was no need to train students how to use it. We have been very pleased with the equipment and we are looking to invest further in it in the near future.”

Dr Chris Jessop, science teacher at AKS School, Lytham, UK

“I used the system for several weeks to do everything from analyzing the motion on a swing and watching the voltage of a battery decline to monitoring the light of a sunset and taking longitude and latitude locations fixers in conjunction with sound and light readings. Its ability to grab data and analyze it is without comparison in such a small unit.”

“The Scottish Advanced Higher Chemistry course requires pupils to carry out a 20 hour project independently. Many of them carry out investigations on colour chemistry and it was for this reason that I decided to purchase two LabQuest 2s. Initial misgivings of mixing students, chemicals and technology were unfounded. The devices are robust and extremely user-friendly. Students found them easy to use and gave them results which could be inserted into their write-up.”

J Anderson, science teacher at St Aloysius’ College, Glasgow, UK

“It seemed obvious that the LabQuest 2 would be a real game changer in the data collection space, but after our field test, it seems more that the LabQuest 2 has invented an entirely new game. However, ultimately it falls on the teachers and students to truly imagine the potential of this technology. In fact, I’d even go so far as to say that human imagination is the main limit of Vernier’s Connected Science System right now.”
