In this lab, students investigate the body’s ability to maintain homeostasis in terms of body temperature by testing the body's response to a cold stimulus. They use a temperature probe to measure the surface temperature of the palm of the hand and relate those results to thermoregulation.

Featured Equipment

Temperature Sensor

Wireless Temperature Sensor

The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.

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.
