Vernier Physics & Engineering Solutions

Looking to deepen your students’ understanding of natural phenomena through meaningful interaction with data? Try our Graphical Analysis Pro app free for 30 days. Contact us today for a trial-activation code. Limit one trial per customer.

The Vernier Video Analysis app brings video analysis to your students in a dedicated and streamlined application. Students can use their mobile devices in the laboratory or out in the field to insert a video with recorded motion, mark points to track the object in motion, and set the scale of the video.

LabQuest 3 is a standalone data-collection platform that students can use to collect, analyze, and interact with data efficiently.

The Go Direct Surface Temperature Sensor is designed for use in situations in which low thermal mass or flexibility is required. This sensor has an exposed thermistor that results in an extremely rapid response time, making it perfect for use in air and water.

The Go Direct Temperature Probe is a rugged, general-purpose sensor that students can use to monitor temperature. Unlike a traditional thermometer, it allows students to collect real-time temperature measurements of a single instance or over a period of time. Its range and wireless capability make the Go Direct Temperature Probe the go-to sensor for real-world applications.

With the KidWind Advanced Wind Experiment Kit, your students can discover advanced aspects of wind turbine technology. They can also test different blade designs, gear ratios, generators, and devices to measure electrical and weightlifting power.

The Dynamics Cart and Track System provides students with the tools they need to explore kinematics, dynamics, momentum, and energy. This versatile system can also be easily adapted to study optics, color, and diffraction.

The Go Direct Photogate is a double-gate sensor that includes two photogates built into the arms of the sensor, which accurately measures velocity and acceleration.

The Go Direct Force and Acceleration Sensor combines a 3‑axis accelerometer with a force sensor for measuring pushes or pulls wherever you need to collect data.

The Go Direct Motion Detector uses ultrasound to measure the position, velocity, and acceleration of moving objects.

The Go Direct Voltage Probe combines a wide input voltage range and high precision, making it an excellent choice for investigations of both AC/DC circuits and electromagnetism.

The Go Direct Current Probe measures the electric currents in circuits.

The Go Direct Energy Sensor quantifies the voltage, current, power, and energy output of small wind turbines and solar panels, such as those used in our KidWind Experiment Kits.

The Go Direct Sound Sensor is used to easily capture and evaluate waveforms.
