Vernier and SAM Labs have created these ready-to-use customized packages of Vernier Go Direct® sensors and SAM output blocks to engage students in scientific discovery and introductory block-based coding. Middle school educators can now blend essential science concepts with computational thinking, beginning block-based coding, and maker-space activities.

Each science-based package comes with a Vernier Go Direct® sensor, SAM Labs output block(s) for a small group of 3–5 students*, and free guided activities that incorporate coding and sensor data based on these science topics:

  • Force
  • Magnetism
  • Motion
  • Sound
  • Temperature

Please see the What’s Included tab above to see specific details for these packages.

*Educators can support larger student groups or an entire class by adding additional Vernier Go Direct® sensors and our Vernier Coding with SAM Labs Extension Package.

Experiments

The staff scientists at Vernier developed these free guided science-based middle school activities in collaboration with SAM Labs. These activities utilize Vernier Go Direct sensors and SAM Labs output blocks in SAM Studio’s Blockly coding platform.
