Version 4.2 of Graphical Analysis for ChromeOS™, macOS™ and Windows® is now available. The Chrome version is in the Chrome Web Store, and the computer versions are available on the Vernier Graphical Analysis web page.
On October 6th, we hosted 32 students from Aloha and Southridge high schools to tour our office for National Manufacturing Day. They learned about packaging and product testing in our production area, saw demos of our sensors with Dave Vernier, played in our augmented reality sandbox, and asked questions with Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici.
The NSTA Blog recently highlighted the Vernier Go Direct 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor in the article, “The Vernier Three-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor: A Magic Wand for Magnets.” Reviewer Martin Horejsi discusses the sensor’s benefits for science classrooms and calls it “a breakthrough in capability, size, weight, price, and most important performance.”
He concludes the review by saying:
“Conducting experiments and inspections with magnets is as easy as waving your magic wand. Don’t have a magic wand? Then use the next best thing, a Go Direct Vernier Three-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor.”
The Go Direct 3-Axis Magnetic Field Sensor measures the components of the magnetic field along three orthogonal axes. This allows students to determine the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field at any point in space. Students can also measure the field along only two axes, or even one axis, choosing the direction that is best for the experiment.
The Go Direct family of sensors offers teachers and students maximum versatility to collect scientific data either wirelessly or via a USB connection. The 16 low-cost sensors, which are designed primarily for chemistry, physical science, and middle school science, can be used in more than 190 teacher-tested experiments developed by Vernier and are supported by free graphing and analysis software, the Graphical Analysis™ 4 app.
Simplify your experimental setup with the Go Direct Current Probe. Use in combination with the Go Direct® Voltage Probe to investigate Ohm’s law or series and parallel circuits. The wireless connection eliminates additional cables that can clutter the lab bench.
Measure human breathing patterns quickly with the Go Direct Respiration Belt. Respiration rate is reported in the Graphical Analysis 4 app, which makes comparison studies between subjects or experiments easy to do.
Teach students about the scientific aspects of real-life physical phenomena, such as the solar eclipse. Check out the data, available for free, collected with Vernier technology during the eclipse by educators like you.
