Martin Horejsi of NSTA Recommends provides helpful tips for teaching students to visualize data in his article, “Learning Visualized with the Vernier Go Direct® Hand Dynamometer.” Martin instructs students to first draw a prediction and then offers students the opportunity to trace the prediction by squeezing a , which measures grip strength. The force of the student’s grip is displayed ...

In education, a common application for an ORP sensor is a potentiometric titration. Similar to an acid-base titration, a titrant is added to a sample incrementally until all the sample has reacted and the end-point is reached.
The deadline for applications for the 2019 Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards is quickly approaching. This annual awards program recognizes seven educators—one elementary teacher, two middle school...

Compatibility Notes. For Bluetooth ® connectivity, only computers running Windows 10 or Mac OS X 10.10 or newer are supported. The computer must also have a compatible Bluetooth 4.0 + radio.; Connect this sensor directly to a computer or Chromebook via a USB or wireless Bluetooth ® connection for best results. Alternatively, this sensor is fully supported when used with LabQuest 2 or ...
The study of Earth science helps educators give students a means to understand the world around them. Students can use Vernier sensors, interfaces, software, and investigations to explore seafloor spreading, the effect of acid rain on soil, the changing of the seasons, and more.
In many engineering projects, it is critically important to know the strength of the material in your design. Strength is a measure of a material's ability to withstand an applied tension, compression, or shear force. Tension forces pull on an object, while compression forces push on an object. Shear forces are two pushing forces that offset one another like the forces applied by the two ...
Have you ever thought about what it would be like if you were on another planet looking back at the sun? In this activity, you will use the Light Probe to get an idea of how much light the planets would receive.
News and Announcements; By Gary Myers, Director of District Outreach When it comes to bringing data collection to the classroom, knowing where to start can be tricky. The team at Vernier Software & Technology compiled a list of our favorite experiments from our lab books—from elementary school science to college-level experiments—to point ...
This Solar Thermal Exploration Kit is modeled after a domestic solar water-heating system. How you design the solar heating system will dramatically affect how quickly the water will heat and the maximum temperature the water will reach.

In your discussion of Newton's first law, you learned that when the sum of the forces acting on an object is zero, its velocity does not change. However, when a net force acts on the object, it accelerates. In this experiment, you will determine the relationship between the net force acting on an object and its acceleration.
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. It connects via Bluetooth® wireless technology or via USB to your device.

Thermocouples are one of the most common types of temperature sensors. They are inexpensive, rugged, and quite versatile, as they can measure a wide range of temperatures from very low (-250°C) to very high (1700°C) values. Since they can be made from very fine wire, they also allow for very fast response times. In 1821 a German physicist, Thomas Johann Seebeck, accidentally discovered that ...
