Inexpensive Motion Detector Facilitates

Beaverton, OR – January 26, 2005 – The new Go! Motion from Vernier Software & Technology provides science and math teachers with an inexpensive and easy-to-use motion detector for use with computers. Go! Motion enables students to engage in hands-on collection of real-world data. With Go! Motion students can quickly collect accurate motion data, which helps them better understand advanced concepts such as position, velocity, and acceleration. The ease of use and instant feedback enhances the learning process and generates student enthusiasm.

“Go! Motion enables teachers to introduce practical but fun activities into their math and science lessons. For example, they can study the motion of a ball being tossed in the air or graph their own motion as they walk back and forth.” said David Vernier, co-founder of Vernier and former physics teacher. “Go! Motion’s versatility and affordability make it a smart choice for science and math teachers.”

Go! Motion connects directly to a computer’s USB port, eliminating the need for a
data-collection interface. It comes with several useful features, including a sensitivity switch, a pivoting head, and automatic temperature correction. Go! Motion can also be used with Vernier’s LabPro, CBL 2, or Texas Instruments graphing calculators. For more information, visit or see the Go! Motion Fact Sheet.

Pricing and Availability
Go! Motion is available for $99 and comes bundled with free Logger Lite software, which supports data collection on Macintosh or Windows computers.
