Science teachers who want to bring an inquiry-based, hands-on approach to their middle school classrooms can enable their students to think and act like real scientists with the Science Kit Physics Lab.
Developed in partnership with Google, the kit challenges students to explore and explain the physics behind amusement park rides.
They examine forces, motion, magnetism, and conductivity, make their own hypotheses like real scientists, then check their assumptions and log data on the Arduino Science Journal app, a digital notebook for conducting and documenting science experiments in real-time.
No prior coding experience is needed - students can simply run their experiments straight out of the box with plug-and-play projects.
Science Kit Physics Lab includes all the hardware and software needed to assemble and conduct nine fun physics experiments based on favorite amusement park rides, covering electromagnetism, thermodynamics, kinetics, and kinematics.
The kit includes a range of sensors to measure light, temperature, motion, and magnetic fields, along with a set of props and access to online course content for both teachers and students.
You’ll just need to provide a few essential classroom supplies (pencils, rulers, etc.) and a LiPo battery.
We recommend two students per kit.
