Free STEM Professional Development Workshops

Free, hands-on training helps you integrate data-collection technology into your science curriculum.

Calling all science educators! Step out of your classrooms and join us for a four-hour exploration of the latest and greatest in probeware and data-collection technology.

Whether you’re currently using data-collection technology in your science classroom or just exploring the use of probeware, join us for a hands-on training opportunity led by a former science educator with years of classroom experience. Connect with peers to share ideas and leave with classroom-ready experiments that will have a positive impact on your students all year.

You’ll leave the workshop ready to excite your students’ learning with data collection. And, to make it even easier, you’ll receive a free Go Direct® Temperature Probe and instructions to download the Workshop Training Manual, which includes ready-to-use lab handouts for all science disciplines.

Hands-On Training for All Science Educators

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

After a brief introduction and overview, you will have the opportunity to try the experiments that interest you. A sample of the experiments include:


  • 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 Force and Acceleration Sensor.


  • Use a Colorimeter to determine the concentration of a nickel sulfate solution in the “Beer’s Law” lab.
  • Investigate the conductivity and concentration of solutions with a Conductivity Probe in the “Conductivity of Solutions” lab.


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

Environmental/Earth Science

  • Explore exciting classroom applications for the built-in GPS sensor that comes in 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.

Coding with Vernier

Explore coding and robotics using mBot and Scratch-based software in the “Follow-the-Line,” activity.
