Martin Horejsi, a blogger with NSTA, posted his first hands-on review of LabQuest 2. Martin took LabQuest 2 to the geyser basin at the Old Faithful complex of Yellowstone Park to collect temperature and pH levels. He watched the data stream on his iPad from a safe distance as the probes collected data from various geysers and hot pools.
We found the LabQuest 2 an impressive combination of capabilities further dissolving the interference of the operation of the technology while preforming real-time data collection.
It seemed obvious that the LabQuest 2 would be a real game changer in the data collection space, but after our field test, it seems more that the LabQuest 2 has invented an entirely new game. However, ultimately it falls on the teachers and students to truly imagine the potential of this technology. In fact, I’d even go so far as to say that human imagination is the main limit of Vernier’s Connected Science System right now.
