K–12 Experiments of the Month: Elevate Hands-On STEM Learning

Featured Experiment for K-12

Vernier offers more than 1,000 experiments in biology, chemistry, engineering/robotics, and physics that can help you inspire students and integrate data-collection technology into your STEM classes. We will be featuring at least one of our experiments in each edition of The Caliper.

Biology

Ventilation and Heart Rate
In this experiment, students use the Go Wireless® Heart Rate, Go Wireless Exercise Heart Rate, Hand-Grip Heart Rate Monitor, or Exercise Heart Rate Monitor to

  • Monitor the heart rate of the test subject 
  • Evaluate the effects of hyperventilation and hypoventilation on heart rate

Ventilation and Heart Rate,” along with a supporting video and sample data, is provided as part of a free trial of Vernier Graphical Analysis Pro. To support science educators during this unprecedented time, we are extending the free trial period for Graphical Analysis Pro through June 2022.

Chemistry

Heat of Fusion for Ice
In this experiment, students use the Go Direct Temperature Probe or Stainless Steel Temperature Probe to 

  • Determine the energy (in Joules) required to melt one gram of ice
  • Determine the molar heat of fusion for ice (in kJ/mol)

Heat of Fusion for Ice,” along with a supporting video and sample experiment data, is provided as part of a free trial of Vernier Graphical Analysis Pro. To support science educators during this unprecedented time, we are extending the free trial period for Graphical Analysis Pro through June 2022.

Physics

Analysis of Jumping” 
In this free sample experiment download, students use the Vernier Video Analysis app to 

  • Obtain position, velocity, and time data for a human subject jumping
  • Analyze the y position and y velocity vs. time graphs for the subject as they jump in two different ways
  • Calculate acceleration using a calculated column to find the maximum acceleration during each jump
Analysis of Jumping

“Analysis of Jumping” is available in our upcoming e-book Vernier Video Analysis: Conservation Laws and Forces, which features 12 investigations in which students explore mechanics topics beyond basic motion (such as conservation of energy and conservation of translational and angular momentum) using Vernier Video Analysis®. To support science educators during this unprecedented time, we are extending the free trial period for Video Analysis through June 2022.
