New Products - ScienceWorkshop PASPORT

The ScienceWorkshop PASPORT line of sensors from PASCO is designed for the middle school science curriculum. The new products include Force, Motion, pH, Heart Rate, and Temperature Sensors. The sensors provide students with first-hand experiences with phenomena that support science teaching and facilitate data collection. Traditionally, such sensors have required special software and cards to operate with computers, but PASPORT sensors are designed for one-step connection to Universal Serial Bus (USB) computer ports that allow advanced communications between sensors and PC or Mac computers.

The sensors can be packaged individually or bundled together with lesson materials that comply with national standards. PASCO, Roseville, CA, (800) 772-8700,
