Product Code: ME-6667


PASCO’s EcoZone System is designed to help students model and understand the complex interactions within, and among, different ecosystems. The three clear acrylic EcoChambers are specially designed to accommodate PASCO sensors, making qualitative and quantitative measurements as easy as observing a classroom aquarium or terrarium..

Students can model interactions between different ecosystems by connecting them via their side ports. Establish a traditional terrestrial, aquatic or decomposition arrangement, or create your own unique biome to model and measure. With the EcoChamber, students can easily alter conditions for controlled studies in how light, moisture, humidity, temperature, acidity, or the introduction of other species impacts the ecosystem! Student groups can selectively manipulate conditions to create their own investigations.

Fermentation investigations

The traditional mechanical approach to yeast respiration studies used mixed gas volume measurement as a proxy for anaerobic respiration in yeast. This approach lacks determination of which gases were produced and in what volume there were produced. In contrast, PASCO’s oxygen gas, carbon dioxide gas, and ethanol gas sensors provide a quick, convenient, cost-effective way to directly measure oxygen gas, carbon dioxide gas, and ethanol gas produced during yeast respiration.
