Coding

Learning to code. Coding to learn.

In today's digital world, coding has become a basic literacy, and it is important for students to be able to understand and work with the technology around it.

With PASCO's //code.Node and Blockly coding, you do not need to be a programmer to teach coding. Together, they drive computational thinking in STEM learning and offer students a new world of experimental opportunities.

Blockly gives students a visual coding environment where they can confidently develop their skills without unintended distractions, learning about correct coding elements such as variables, commands, and loops. //code.Node combines real-world sensor inquiry and Blockly coding to bring your students’ code beyond the screen and to the real world.

Meet //code.Node !

Getting started with //code.Node is quick and easy. Simply connect the //code.Node to SPARKvue and begin coding instructions for its sensor inputs and device outputs. As the code is executed, SPARKvue displays real-time data from the //code.Node’s active sensors.

//code.Node is comprised of six sensor inputs, including a Temperature Sensor, Motion Sensor, Magnetic Field Sensor, Sound Sensor, Light Sensor, and two Momentary Switches, and four device outputs that can be programmed alone, together, or in combination with any PASCO sensor.

 

Programing With Blockly

Included in SPARKvue 4 and Capstone 2, Blockly offers students a new world of experimental opportunities that focus on computational thinking, data visualization, and sensor inquiry. As they execute their code, students can visualize their data using real-time graphical displays that assist with data visualization. The user-friendly design allows students to simply drag and connect coding blocks that correlate with syntactically correct coding elements such as variables, commands, and loops.

  • 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.

  • Your lab equipment is of the highest quality and technical support is always there to help. During the 25 years we have used a wide array of lab equipment including computer interfacing. Your Pasco line has a high profile in our lab and will continue to do so far into the future.

  • 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.
