Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM)

Incorporating PASCO sensors into your school’s SHSM program enhances learning experiences in many different ways and helps students develop valuable skills for succeeding in their chosen career path.  Every school’s SHSM program is unique, but the requirement to engage students, and provide meaningful opportunities for growth is universal.

Here are some examples of how PASCO sensors can help your SHSM:

  • For Energy SHSMs: PASCO dynamics equipment & sensors demonstrate motion and electricity
  • For Environmental SHSMs: PASCO sensors monitor the environment, water testing & environmental investigations
  • For Agriculture SHSMs: PASCO sensors & software offer mapping with GPS/GIS functionality
  • Currently there are 19 different SHSM programs offered in Ontario.  Each SHSM 'sector' requires students to complete bundles of 8-10 courses in Gr. 11 / 12.
  • Most SHSMs recommend a SCIENCE course and our PASCO Sensors are already being used in many of these SHSM courses for hands-on learning.
  • PASCO wireless sensors are the best data collection tools for your lab. They are easy to use, low cost, and work with PASCO's award winning SPARKvue software.

Energy SHSM

The Energy SHSM focuses on STEM (Science, Technology, Math and Engineering) and today’s rapid and exciting changes in green energy.

Energy is an emerging and expanding sector that encompasses all aspects of energy generation, distribution, and consumption, including research and development, design, construction, installation, and maintenance. PASCO solutions such as the smart cart, circuit kits and sensors are being widely used at colleges and universities across Canada, many of which are on the Energy SHSM Pathway.

  • 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.

    Matt Tumbach | Secondary Instructional Technology Leader | Tommy Douglas Collegiate | Saskatoon, SK

  • 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.

    Reed Jeffrey | Science Department Head | Upper Canada College | Toronto ON

  • 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.

    Mark Richards | Technology Integration Consultant | Annapolis Valley R.S.B. | Nova Scotia

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

    Shawn McFadden | Technical Specialist | Ryerson University | Toronto, Ontario

  • 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.
