Engage your students in physical computing with the Go Direct® Force and Acceleration Sensor, meant to motivate them to collaborate, promote computational thinking, and encourage creative problem solving. They can make a Sprite move in response to the sensor spinning, tilting, or falling, or create an interactive art project using the sensor’s force data.
We’ve designed a full module of Vernier Scratch activities—including a teacher’s guide—that helps students sharpen coding skills and gain valuable experience with data‑collection technology.
Help your students engage with coding through these free interactive activities. No sensor is required, but each activity offers an optional extension using the Go Direct Force and Acceleration Sensor.
All of the beginning and intermediate-level Vernier Scratch activities above are available to download as a complete course module for your convenience. The module also includes a teacher guide to help you best utilize these activities in your class.
