Yes, Vernier Go Direct sensors can connect to a few select applications besides Vernier Graphical Analysis 4. Additionally, you can connect to and collect data from Go Direct sensors using a variety of programming languages including Python, JavaScript, LabVIEW, and Scratch. Here is a brief summary of the requirements for these.


Google Science Journal
Science Journal can connect to and collect data from Go Direct sensors. Currently, this feature is only supported on Android devices.

Microsoft Excel
The other brand new feature you may want to explore is the ability to collect data into Excel directly. Requires Windows 10 computer, Microsoft Excel Data Streamer, Excel, and the latest version of Vernier Graphical Analysis™ 4 app.

Programming Languages

Go Direct sensors can be used in coding instruction for everyone from novices to experienced programmers. We support Go Direct in following languages/platforms:

This popular block based programming language makes coding accessible to even the youngest students. Combine coding with input from the classroom via the Go Direct® Force and Acceleration Sensor (GDX-FOR) to bring the real world into your coding activities. Compatible with Mac or Windows computers, running  Scratch Link app, or the Scratch app on a Chromebook.

Google Workbench
Workbench has incorporated several of our sensors into the Programming canvas of their website. This allows you to code in a Blockly-based environment using our sensor data and interacting with other equipment such as micro:bit and SAM LABS education tools.
