Go Direct Sensors and Scratch 3
Vernier Go Direct sensors bring real-world data into your Scratch project. Engage your students in physical computing with the Go Direct® Force and Acceleration Sensor and the Scratch extension, 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.

Scratch 3 Resources
If you are new to Scratch, the Scratch team has put together an excellent Idea page, a Getting Started video tutorial, and multiple Activity Tutorials. Once you are comfortable with the fundamentals of Scratch, our Go Direct Extensions will allow you to create new kinds of projects that use real-world measurements.
