Engaging Students in Technology for Experiential Learning and STEM Education
Forget the toothpicks and engage students with design-based learning as they create realistic bridges, manipulate weight loads, and learn about tension with the included Wireless Load Cell. These real-world designs encourage creativity, collaboration, and problem solving, while reinforcing engineering and physics concepts.
Included in SPARKvue 4 and Capstone 2, Blockly offers students a new world of experimental opportunities that focus on computational thinking, data visualization, and sensor inquiry. As they execute their code, students can visualize their data using real-time graphical displays that assist with data visualization.
PASCO's Simple Machines Engineering Kit gives students the tools to develop realistic systems, while actively learning about torque, gears, levers, pulleys, and more.
Quiet the chaos of circuit lessons with the addition of a wireless kit that reconciles variations between textbook circuit models and real-life circuits. To electrically connect two modules, students insert a jumper clip, which emphasizes that an electrical connection has been made. These hands-on circuit tools bridge learning gaps and reduce the structural complexity of traditional circuit kits to improve learning outcomes.
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.
Awaken your students’ inner engineers with these design-based Structure Systems. PASCO’s realistic structures range in complexity from single trusses to dynamic kits, enabling educators to tailor the activity’s difficulty as needed. Create a simple design challenge, such as creating a stable bridge, or challenge students with structural requirements they can test using Load Cells.
