Our webinars offer innovative ways to engage students with STEM in traditional classroom or virtual environments. Our experienced educational technology specialists will walk you through experiments that students can do using our free sample data.

Out of the Box—and Beyond—with Photogates

May 23 | 9:00–10:00 a.m. (PDT) | 12:00–1:00 p.m. (EDT)

Photogates are traditionally used in the study of kinematics. However, you can use them all year in unexpected and engaging ways. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to set up photogates for basic data collection. We will also explore innovative ways to use the sensor, including measuring rotational kinematics, measuring pendulum periods, and using the laser gate.
