Bridging the Gap Between High School and College Science
My students need LabQuest 2 interfaces to use during our studies of Physics and Biology. These are the same interfaces that many colleges use in their laboratory courses.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach in a high-poverty school district with an amazing mix of young learners. Access to quality materials is always one of the limiting factors in my curriculum. Nevertheless, the students that make up my classes are dedicated to learning.
I teach both Physics and Living Environment (Biology) so most of my yearly budget is used while purchasing consumables for laboratory experiments.
By giving my students access to digital sensors I am hoping to help them prepare for college-level work and beyond.
The Vernier LabQuest 2 sensor interfaces will allow my students to increase the validity and rate of data collection during our class experiments. We can attach accelerometers, force sensors, voltmeters, and ammeters for our physics labs and thermometers, pH readers, and pulse sensors for our biology labs.
My classroom has an inquiry-based lab component so the versatility of the LabQuests will greatly increase the variety of experiments that my students develop.
The LabQuest interfaces are intuitive to use and will help my class become familiar with the kinds of equipment that many colleges are now using for their lab courses.
