Hands-On Training for all Science Educators

Get ready to explore these popular experiments, designed to meet the needs of teachers across a wide variety of grade levels and STEM disciplines.

After an introduction and overview, you will have the opportunity to try the experiments that interest you.


  • In “Impulse and Momentum” use a Go Direct® Sensor Cart to determine impulse and change in momentum based on measurements of force and velocity.
  • Explore Newton’s second law using a Go Direct® Force and Acceleration Sensor.
  • Investigate magnetic fields with a Magnetic Field Sensor.


  • Use a Colorimeter to determine the concentration of a nickel sulfate solution in the “Beer’s Law” experiment.
  • Investigate the conductivity and concentration of solutions with a Conductivity Probe in the “Conductivity of Solutions” experiment.
  • Conduct acid-base titrations with a pH Sensor and Drop Counter.


  • Measure concentrations of carbon dioxide during cell respiration with a CO2 Gas Sensor.
  • In the “Monitoring EKG” experiment, you’ll strap on an EKG Sensor and graph your own heart’s electrical activity!
  • Explore “Enzyme Action” with a Gas Pressure Sensor.

Environmental/Earth Science

  • Explore exciting classroom applications for the built-in GPS sensor that is included with LabQuest 2.
  • In “Exploring Magnetism,” you’ll measure and manipulate the strength of magnetic fields using a Magnetic Field Sensor.

K–8 Science Education

  • Use a Heart Rate Monitor to measure your heart rate before and after exercise in the “Heart Rate and Exercise” experiment.
  • In “Learning to Use a Motion Detector,” you’ll use a Motion Detector to measure the position of objects as they move.

Additional Activities, Even More Sensors

  • Goniometer
  • Vernier Optical DO Probe
  • Radiation Monitors
  • Vernier Projectile Launcher
  • And more!
