Webinars

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.

Plant Pigments Online: How to Engage College Biology Students in Active Learning!

June 28 | 1:00–2:00 p.m. (PDT) | 4:00–5:00 p.m. (EDT)

Plant pigments offer an approachable way for college students to learn about the properties of light transmission and absorbance, as well as the properties of chlorophyll. Join us as we demonstrate how to use the Go Direct® SpectroVis® Plus Spectrophotometer to measure the visible absorbance spectra of plant pigments and food coloring. We will explore how this experiment has been embedded in the Lt platform for online learning. We will also discuss how you can easily build your biology curriculum, customize labs, grade answers, track student progress, and scaffold learning in Lt.

Experiments: 

  • The Visible Spectra of Plant Pigments (Advanced Biology with Vernier, Experiment 13)

Investigating the Protein Content of Animal and Plant-Based “Milks”

June 30, 2022 | 1:30–2:30 p.m. (PDT) | 4:30–5:30 p.m. (EDT)

Macromolecules, such as proteins, are formed by connecting many smaller molecules together. In this webinar, we team up with Bio-Rad® to explore an innovative way to introduce your students to the study of macromolecules using a Go Direct® SpectroVis® Plus Spectrophotometer and a Got Protein? Kit to investigate the protein content of animal and plant-based “milks.” We will also show you how to make your own “nut milk.” 

Experiment: 

  • Investigating Protein (Investigating Biology through Inquiry, Experiment 5)

Exploring Mathematical Models through Experiments, Simulations, and Coding

July 6, 2022 | 1:00–2:00 p.m. (PDT) | 4:00–5:00 p.m. (EDT)

Mathematical models are the nuts and bolts of physics education. We use them to describe, explain, and predict the range of physics phenomena in our classrooms. In this webinar, we will compare and contrast three methods for exploring mathematical models: experiments using sensors, online interactive simulations, and Python® coding. We’ll discuss their advantages and disadvantages, as well as when you may choose one method over another. 

Experiments: 

  • Simple Harmonic Motion (Physics with Vernier, Experiment 15)

Ask Me Anything: pH Sensor Care and Feeding

July 13, 2022 | 10:00–10:30 a.m. (PDT) | 1:00–1:30 p.m. (EDT)

As part of our Ask Me Anything series, Dr. Melissa Hill and Nüsret Hisim take a deep dive into pH maintenance and calibration. Whether you are a Logger Pro®, LabQuest®, or Vernier Graphical Analysis user, we’ll answer all your questions about our pH sensors—including the cabled and wireless options. 

We’ll also discuss tips for

  • Calibrating and testing pH sensors
  • Preventing mold growth
  • Cleaning the glass bulb of the pH electrode
  • Storing pH sensors properly
