Space Bound

web-bc-science-project-Rocket_450Four boys from McGowan Park Elementary School in Kamloops, B.C., won a contest to have their experiment join 17 other student projects from across North America on a trip to the orbiting station.

On Oct 28, 2014 the experiment along with other supplies were destroyed when the NASA-contracted rocket destined for the space station exploded. Subsequent launches containing a reconstructed second experiment were cancelled or delayed.  Despite these major set backs the boys finally saw their experiment launch successfully on January 10, 2015.

Once at the Space Station, the Kamloops students’ experiment will examine how the zero-gravity environment of space affects the growth of crystals.

The students prepared silicon tubes containing solutions that, when mixed, cause crystals to form. On the space station, astronauts will remove small clips keeping the solutions apart. When the tubes are returned, (hopefully as early as February) the students will analyze the crystals and compare them to crystals grown on Earth.

The projects are part of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program, which is run by the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education.

  • Wireless Spectrometer Big Hit With Students – PASCO’s wireless spectrometer has been utilized very well by our earth science and physical science teachers. It’s an excellent piece of equipment and we have very much enjoyed its addition to enriching our classroom. It definitely brings students to a higher level of understanding wave interaction at a molecular level.

  • Excellent Smart Cart – I thought the cart was excellent. The quick sampling rate for force will be very useful for momentum and collision labs we do. I’m recommending we include this in our order for next school year.

  • Datalogging Activities are Cross-Curricular

    Throughout the province of Nova Scotia, PASCO’s probeware technology has been merged with the rollout of the new P-6 curriculum. We chose a number of sensors for use with our project-based activities. Both the functionality and mobility of PASCO’s dataloggers enable students to collect authentic, real-world data, test their hypotheses and build knowledge.

  • We have a large number of PASCO wireless spectrometers and love how they have improved the learning experience for our students.

  • During distance learning due to COVID-19 school shut down, I was given a short window to collect what I could from my classroom to teach online. The PASCO wireless sensors and Smart Carts were my top priority to collect to implement distance learning. By sharing experimental data with students via SPARKVue, the sensors were pivotal in creating an online experience that still allowed students to grow with their lab skills. It was easy to record videos of the data collection and share the data with my students. They did a phenomenal job examining and interpreting the data.
