Magnetic Field Strength

Students use a magnetic field sensor to measure the magnetic field at the center of a coil at five different current levels. Students plot magnetic...

High School / Chemistry

Phase Change

Students will use a wireless temperature sensor to determine the affect of phase change on the temperature of a substance.

High School / Physics

Buoyant Force

Students measure the upward force on a cylinder and the displaced volume as it is submerged in a fluid. They determine the relationship between...

High School / Physics

Position, Distance, and Displacement

Students will explore and discover the difference between position, distance, and displacement using graphs of their own motion.

High School / Physics

Rotational Dynamics

Students use hanging masses to apply torque to a rotating arm and measure its angular acceleration. After varying the torque, they experimentally...

Fruit Battery

Students will construct an electrochemical cell using common materials. They will explore how the voltage changes as the cells are connected...

Advanced Placement / Biology


Students use an ethanol sensor to determine the ability of yeast to use different types of carbohydrates—sucrose and starch—for fermentation.

High School / Chemistry

Titration Curves

Students will use a pH sensor and a drop counter to explore the shape of a titration curve produced by a strong acid and a weak acid when titrated...
