See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The Elementary Science Extension Lab Station includes two wireless sensors that complement the set of sensors found in the Elementary Science Starter Lab Station (PS-3314). Together, the sensors from the Elementary Science Starter and Extension Lab Stations comprise the sensors to perform many of the lab investigations inside PASCO's Essential Elementary Science Lab Manual. A storage slot for each sensor in the Elementary Science Extension Lab Station is available in the Gratnells storage tray that comes with the Elementary Science Starter Lab Station.
Components of the Extension Lab Station
Wireless Sensors: PASCO's rugged, low-cost wireless sensors connect directly to computers, Chromebooks, tablets, and mobile devices to allow students to quickly collect data, leaving more time for analyzing and interpreting data. This lab station includes:
- 1x Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS (PS-3209)
- 1x Wireless Sound Sensor (PS-3227)
Digital Access to Lab Activities: Included with the starter lab station is digital access to PASCO's Essential Elementary Science Lab Manual. This lab manual includes 10 labs that cover a complete year of elementary school science. Each lab activity includes editable student handouts and various teacher resources including answer keys and sample data.
Distance Learning Resources: 10 labs from the Essential Elementary Science Lab Manual also include digital resources to support distance learning for students working at home. Resources such as live video recordings of data collection and sample data files they can use to perform their own analyses.
The Essential Elementary Science Lab Manual includes 10 lab activities that integrate PASCO sensors and equipment for an engaging year of elementary school science teaching. The combined Elementary Science Starter Lab Station (PS-3314) and Elementary Science Extension Lab Station (PS-3315) comprise the sensors used to perform the following labs investigations.
