    Complete Coding with Sensor Technologies Kit

STEM Sense Kits offer educators full flexibility with customizable activity sheets, an interactive flipbook, and engaging video lessons that make it easy to support student learning whether they’re in the classroom or at home.

Support science and data literacy with live sensor data, interactive displays, and intuitive analysis tools that bring investigations to life. Kick-start your STEM experience with the //code.Node, then add additional sensors for unlimited possibilities.

The Blockly integration within PASCO’s data software helps familiarize students with the basics of programming, while providing them with customizable blocks and robust data features that enable them to apply their knowledge in a variety of real-world investigations.

STEM Sense Student Activities

Each complete kit arrives ‘classroom-ready’ with a Student Activities Booklet and editable, digital teacher resources. The booklets include engaging hands-on activities with step-by-step instructions, sample programs, and student questions that align with state and national science standards, as well as computer science standards. The accompanying digital resources include editable versions of the student activities, teacher answer keys, and an Interactive Flipbook with embedded student video lessons.

STEM Sense Activities skillfully scaffold concepts to ensure students are consistently engaged and developing their skillsets. Each booklet begins by introducing students to foundational coding blocks, concepts, and skills to help them build confidence using Blockly and the //code.Node. As they progress further into the investigations, students are challenged to apply their new knowledge to code-driven investigations that explore the science and sensors behind real-world technology.

Science and STEM topics include:

  • Automotive engineering
  • Probability and random numbers
  • Properties of sound and light
  • Magnetism and magnetic poles
  • Position, acceleration, and rotation
  • Properties of colour and colour mixing
  • And more!

Computer Science Topics Include:

  • Boolean logic
  • Algorithms
  • Variables
  • Conditionals
  • Input and output functions
  • Loops
  • Array indexing
  • And more!

A Future Driven by STEM

Engaging Students in Technology for Experiential Learning and STEM Education

As digital natives, today’s students are comfortable exploring new technology, yet many continue to struggle with mathematics and science standards. STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education prepares modern learners for a future rich in information and technology by engaging them in the exploration of natural phenomena.

Engaging students of all ages in STEM learning cultivates a range of technical and soft skills, including critical thinking skills, problem solving, perseverance, design thinking, collaboration, computational thinking, and creativity. Effective STEM activities integrate standards into open lessons within the context of real-world phenomena. Students usually begin with an introductory lesson that relates STEM to a real-world problem. Then, they’re asked to solve the problem using a variety of methods, including research, collaboration, inquiry, and testing. These real-world challenges encourage students to act as scientists as they research the issue, form an understanding, develop a solution, test, fail, collaborate, and succeed. Whether they’re programming, building, or measuring, STEM invites students to transition from observers to active participants in the learning process.

  • 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.

  • We have a large number of PASCO wireless spectrometers and love how they have improved the learning experience for our students.

  • During distance learning due to COVID-19 school shut down, I was given a short window to collect what I could from my classroom to teach online. The PASCO wireless sensors and Smart Carts were my top priority to collect to implement distance learning. By sharing experimental data with students via SPARKVue, the sensors were pivotal in creating an online experience that still allowed students to grow with their lab skills. It was easy to record videos of the data collection and share the data with my students. They did a phenomenal job examining and interpreting the data.
