Using Vernier Sensors with Arduino®

Experiment #2 from Vernier Coding Activities with Arduino®: Analog Sensors

Education Level
High School


Have you collected data with sensors for a science class? Most people collect data and accept without question that sensors and software work together to provide relatively accurate readings.

This activity is designed to remove some of the mystery of how sensors work.


  • Understand how sensors work
  • Measure the output from a sensor using an Arduino microcontroller
  • Convert the output of the Arduino into a voltage
