The //code.Node has six interactive sensors and four device outputs that measure and respond to phenomena using code created in SPARKvue or Capstone software.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
