PASCO’s Python Library

The PASCO Python Library lets learners, educators, and hobbyists take full control of their PASCO Wireless Sensors using Python code. Visit us on GitHub to download the PASCO Python API, browse sample code, and review tips for getting started.

Why Python?

  • Python is used in schools and universities around the world.
  • It’s simple, readable, and flexible, making it ideal for both beginners and experts.
  • Python resources are readily accessible thanks to its global community of creators, collaborators, and problem-solvers.

Python vs. Blockly

Blockly is an easy-to-use, block-based programming platform available in both SPARKvue and PASCO Capstone. Unlike Blockly, Python is a text-based programming language that is independent from PASCO software. This library lets you bring Python into the PASCO ecosystem for complete control of your data. With Python, users control all aspects of sensor data collection, from sensor connections and sampling rates to data displays and custom analytics.
