Biology Extension Lab Station

Product Code: EB-6335

Description

The Biology Extension Lab Station includes 3 wireless sensors and an EcoChamber that complement the set of sensors found in the Biology Starter Lab Station (EB-6335). Together, the sensors from the Biology Starter and Extension Lab Stations comprise the sensors needed to perform many of the lab investigations inside PASCO’s Essential Biology and Advanced Biology Through Inquiry lab manuals. A storage slot for each sensor in the Biology Extension Lab Station is available in the Gratnells storage tray that comes with the Biology Starter Lab Station.


Components of the Extension Lab Station

Wireless Sensors: PASCO’s rugged, low-cost wireless sensors connect directly to computers, Chromebooks, tablets, and mobile devices to allow students to quickly collect data, leaving more time for analyzing and interpreting data. This lab station includes:

  • 1x Wireless Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensor (PS-3224)
  • 1x Wireless Colorimeter and Turbidity Sensor (PS-3215)
  • 1x Wireless Conductivity Sensor (PS-3210)
  • 1x PASCO EcoChamber

Digital Access to Lab Activities: Included with the extension lab station is digital access to:

  • PASCO’s Essential Biology manual. This lab manual includes 25 labs that cover topics in respiration, photosynthesis, enzymatic activity, membrane permeability, osmosis, cell size, body regulation, environmental impacts on reaction rates and organism response. Each lab activity includes editable student handouts and various teacher resources including answer keys and sample data.
  • PASCO’s Advanced Biology Through Inquiry Manual – This lab manual covers the latest standards for College Board AP Biology

Distance Learning Resources: The 10 labs found in the Essential Biology Printed Samples Booklet also include digital resources to support distance learning for students working at home. These resources include live video recordings of data collection and sample data files that students can use to perform their own analyses.


Lab Activities

The Essential Biology Printed Samples Booklet includes 10 lab activities that integrate PASCO sensors and equipment for an engaging year of biology teaching. The combined Biology Starter Lab Station (EB-6334) and Biology Extension Lab Station (EB-6363) comprise the sensors used to perform all 10 labs, plus many of the 44 lab activities found in PASCO’s Essential Biology Lab Manual and Advanced Biology through Inquiry Lab Manual via a Pasco.com user login.
