My Students

My students are in either 6th or 7th grade and often work in groups for labs with technological, data-gathering devices. These labs range from calculating humidity, using force sensors to calculate friction, and measuring temperature changes.

I love seeing my students light up when they learn through a hands-on activity in science.

They remember the content better and have fun while learning it! We often travel outside the classroom to get a more engaging lesson outdoors. In the end, I see my students often take their knowledge of science home with them and apply it to their daily lives.

My Project

With our Vernier Labquest 2s, we can study various different scientific phenomena. We have temperature probes, motion detectors, and even force sensors. We have looked at the change in temperature when ice is mixed with salt and even plan to look at the acceleration of an item attached to a parachute.

One aspect of science that is sorely missing is light.

The electromagnetic spectrum runs through all of the different subjects we teach in science. The new Go Direct Light and Color sensors from Vernier not only pick up visible light, but ultraviolet as well. They are also wireless, allowing more versatility in the design of our experiments.
