Physics Starter Sensor Bundle

Product Code: PS-2923


Convenient kit featuring the sensors designed to get you started using probeware in your physics lab.

This sensor bundle is designed to perform 26 of the 37 Lab Activities from Physics through Inquiry. Also designed for use with the 10 free Physics SPARKlabs that come for free with each SPARK Science Learning System or license of SPARKvue software.

These standards-based labs completely integrate the relevant science background, and provide a guided approach to thinking about a question and then discovering the science through measurement, analysis and reflection.

Perform Physics through Inquiry lab activities

This bundle of four sensors allows you to perform 26 of the activities from the Physics through Inquiry Teachers Guide whether you are using the SPARK Science Learning System, SPARKvue software, the Xplorer GLX or DataStudio.

Perform Physics SPARKlabs

Together with the SPARK Science Learning System (PS-2008), the Physics Starter Sensor Bundle provides the foundation for discovery-based science learning in your physics program. You get 10 free pre-installed Physics SPARKlabs on every SPARK Science Learning System (plus many more in other sciences—over 60 in all!).
