Motion Five Ways: Experiments with Our New Cart Fan

Monday, January 8 • 12:45–1:45 p.m.

Ready to try out the new Vernier Cart Fan? Join us to explore one of our newest accessories designed to explore force, acceleration, equilibrium, and vectors with your students. This easy-to-use, modular tool requires no programming and offers four force durations and four levels of thrust. Combine two or three Cart Fans on one Go Direct® Sensor Cart for even more variations in force, creating a complete Newton’s second law experiment in one convenient set—no track needed!

Renewable Energy in the Physics Classroom

Monday, January 8 • 2:00–3:00 p.m.

Use small solar panels and wind turbines to explore renewable energy and learn how it fits into the curriculum. Topics include energy transformation, energy storage, induced EMF, photoelectric effect, series and parallel circuits, and more! The Go Direct Energy Sensor makes measurements quick and easy.

Your Physics Solutions

This year, our booth will have the sensors you know and love, along with new tools for you to explore.

Cart Fan for DTS and Go Direct carts

The Cart Fan is a modular fan that you can add to your Go Direct carts that provides a constant force for dynamics investigations like constant acceleration, balanced/unbalanced forces, and variable thrust angles.


Designed for much higher forces than the Dual-Range Force or Go Direct Force and Acceleration sensors, the Go Direct Force Plate can measure the forces developed during stepping, jumping, and other human-scale actions.

The Vernier Video Analysis app brings video analysis to your students in a dedicated and streamlined application. Students can use their mobile devices in the laboratory or out in the field to insert a video with recorded motion, mark points to track the object in motion, and set the scale of the video.


Advanced Physics with Vernier—Beyond Mechanics has recently been adapted for Vernier Graphical Analysis® Pro and the Go Direct family of sensors. It features experiments for more in-depth introductory physics courses, such as college physics, AP* Physics, or IB Physics. Experiments are designed for an interactive teaching style, with planned moments for instructor- or student-led discussion. 

Coming soon: Advanced Physics with Vernier—Mechanics, also adapted for Graphical Analysis Pro and Go Direct sensors.

Blog Highlights

Despite their relative simplicity, photogates are actually incredibly versatile. They can detect objects in a range of sizes and measure anything from the swing of a pendulum to the acceleration of a cart on a ramp. Five tips to help you get the most out of your experiments using photogates are included.

The Dynamics Cart and Track System is at the core of every physics lab. These versatile setups equip students with the tools they need to explore fundamentals in kinematics, dynamics, momentum, and energy. Find out what you need to consider when choosing a cart and track system that aligns with your classroom needs and goals.
