Welcome to the modern thermometer. Now, students can access real-time data that continuously monitors, logs, and plots temperature measurements on nearly any device. When lab-time ends but the experiment continues, students can set the sensor to log data autonomously for days or weeks, then download it for analysis later. This durable, wireless sensor features a stainless steel temperature probe for the most demanding of applications, as well as a battery that lasts over a year*. It can be used in a wide array of experiments and activities because it measures small, but significant temperature changes produced by chemical reactions, convection currents, and even skin temperatures.
Note: The rugged sensor housing/handle is rated for temperatures of -10 ºC to 40 ºC. This means it cannot be subjected to the same extremes as the stainless steel probe. For extremely low or high temperature applications we recommend the Electrode Support to keep the sensor in the proper position during experiments.
*Battery life is based on typical usage in a secondary or college lab.
- Simply pair and go, no cables or adapters to manage

In this lab, students will use fast response temperature sensors and absolute pressure sensors to measure changes in the temperature of an endothermic reaction and the temperature and pressure changes of an exothermic reaction.
In this lab, students will use temperature sensors to develop a better understanding of the phase change from gas to liquid.
In this lab, students will use fast response temperature sensors to measure changes in temperature over time. Students will complete four trials of Alka-Seltzer® tablets reactions before analyzing their data.
In this lab, students will use absolute pressure and temperature sensors to experimentally determine a numerical value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.
In this lab, students explore specific heat by measuring the temperatures of water and sand under an incandescent bulb. Then, they use a calorimeter to precisely measure the specific heat of each.
Students will design an airbag system that inflates in 2 seconds or less.
