 Vernier Software & Technology has created new probes and sensors for the LabQuest family of handheld interfaces. The Anemometer, High Current Sensor, 30-Volt Voltage Probe, and Melt Station are designed to measure and collect scientific data ranging from wind speed to melting temperatures.

The palm-sized, impeller-type Anemometer measures wind speed in the range of 0.5 to 30 m/s (1 to 67 mph). The High Current Sensor is used to measure current in the range of -10 to +10 Ampere. The 30-Volt Voltage Probe is used to measure voltages in the wide range of -30 to +30 volts.

The new Melt Station, designed for college organic chemistry, measures the melting temperature of solid substances, using a built-in RTD temperature detector over a range of 30°C to 260°C.

Vernier’s New LabQuest Stream™ Expands Data-Collection Possibilities with Bluetooth® Connectivity

To expand data-collection possibilities in the science classroom, Vernier Software & Technology, the leading worldwide innovator of real-time sensor data-collection, graphing, and analysis tools for science education, has developed LabQuest Stream™. This wireless and USB sensor interface allows students to collect scientific data from multiple sensors with a mobile device, Chromebook™, or computer. LabQuest Stream provides educators the freedom and flexibility to collect data using a wide variety of computing platforms, and it is compatible with more than 50 Vernier sensors.

Grant Rewards Innovative Educators Using Data-Collection Technology

Vernier Software & Technology and the National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) are accepting applications for the annual Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards. The awards, valued at $3,000 each, will recognize up to seven educators who demonstrate the best inquiry-based, hands-on learning activities using data-collection technology interfaced with computers, TI graphing calculators and other handheld devices such as the Vernier LabQuest.
