What’s New in Capstone 2

Circuits Emulation

Reinforce circuit concepts and tackle student misconceptions using circuit visualization. Combine real-world circuits with simulations, animation, and live measurements.

With the Circuits Emulation tool in Capstone 2, you can:

  • Construct and modify circuits
  • Show conventional current and electron flow animation
  • Animate circuits with live sensor data

Drag components out from the components list. Rotate components, and connect pieces together by drawing wires.

Trials Table

This is how science is actually done.

You never take only one run in science. You take multiple runs, and calculate averages. Next, you vary a parameter while holding the other constant; again, taking more runs and calculating averages. Most software data tables don’t actually allow this to be done easily.

The Capstone Trails table was created for how data is collected in the science lab, and allows for the kind of analysis students need to perform.

  • Organize your data to easily define physical relationships.
  • Track variables
  • Average runs
  • Plot derived values

Using the simple pendulum lab as an example, students will time a simple pendulum under various conditions. They will vary the mass, length, and starting angle. The Capstone Trials Table allows you to vary and keep track of experimental parameters between trials, and runs taken in each trial. You can also keep track of statistics for averaged runs and experimental error.

Blockly Coding

Helps students develop computational thinking skills

Physics educators want more experimental control and programming access to all PASCO interfaces and sensors. Students need tools to develop creative programming and problem-solving skills in science. Blockly coding has been built into Capstone 2, giving teachers and students the tools they need to develop these skills.

Graph Pop-Up Tools

Now, whenever tools are activated, the most common actions will be easily accessible on the graph. The pop-up tools allow for easy access to tool features and options.

Overview

PASCO Capstone allows users to quickly layout custom pages, automatically recognizes sensors when connected, has a powerful set of analysis tools and much, much more.

PASCO Capstone was built from the ground up to be the most powerful and flexible option for physics and engineering applications.

  • Windows/Mac compatibility
  • Can be used with all current and legacy PASCO USB interfaces.
  • Works with all PASCO sensors — ScienceWorkshop, PASPORT, and Wireless.
  • Completely customizable lab pages
  • Multiple displays including graphs, tables, oscilloscope, bar meters, FFT and more
  • Deep video analysis tools
  • Opens DataStudio, Xplorer GLX and SPARKvue files.

  • A big thanks for all the help and support you provided – I want to take some time to say a big thanks for all the help and support you provided me to select the best equipment in order to make the best possible use of the funds available. It is really exceptional that you happily connected with me multiple times even during the weekend and was always motivated to help. Please accept my big thanks for this.

  • 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.

    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.

    What we find important to a successful implementation and adoption by teachers is showing that the probes are not a ‘standalone technology’. The datalogging activities are very cross-curricular and can incorporate math, english, science, and geography outcomes.

    We are excited to learn more about PASCO’s new weather sensor because our students enjoy projects where they can share and compare their data with weather stations from around the world and be part of a global community.
