The HyperDuino Motor and Servo Set adds the element of controlled movement to your projects. Flip a switch, drive a car, raise a flag--anything!
Here are some links to HyperDuino documentation provided by the designer:
Introduce your students to hydroponics with this small indoor system. Comes with a 6"H x 16"W x 24"L container that holds 6 individual planters, air pump with tubing, water level indicator, adjustable height grow light stand, and four 2' T5 lights.
Note: O‘ahu pickup only!
The Kill-A-Watt power meter measures and records appliance power consumption and calculates power cost based on local power companies’ price per kilowatt. Students can investigate “standby power”, and explore the energy consumed by appliances even when they are turned off.
littleBits are just what they sound like! Little bits of technology that can be magnetically attached together to make just about any electronics-based maker project. The STEAM Student Set includes all the bits to occupy 3 students, or 6+ if grouped. The set contains 19 Bits and 45 Accessories, 8 Challenges, 6 Step-by-Step Resources, and an Invention Guide Book. Even better, a wealth of community-created content and tips are just a Google search away!
MakerBot has long been a top choice for 3D printing in the classroom. The Mini+ is compact and very quick and easy to set up. It includes a built-in camera that allows users to monitor longer print jobs through the MakerBot mobile app. If you are just getting started with 3D printing, the comprehensive and user-friendly MakerBot Replicator Mini+ is a perfect place to start.
MakeyMakey is a small circuit board that is connected to a computer via USB cable. The computer thinks that the circuit board is the actual keyboard! With alligator clips, students can attach various conductive objects to the circuit boards to design their own keyboards!
Normally, computer games and musical instruments are played using the standard keyboard. But with their very own MakeyMakey keyboards, just imagine the possibilities for students to design computer game controllers or musical instruments! MakeyMakeys have long been a student favorite for experiencing the engineering design process, learning about conductive and insulating materials, and as an introduction to circuitry.
The Ozobot Bit is the 1st generation robot from Ozobot. Ozobots are a great way to engage students and bring robotics and coding into the classroom. Ozobot robots are codable two ways, 1) “screen free” using colored markers to draw commands on paper (washable markers or Sharpies work well) or 2) program using Ozoblockly coding app (similar to Code Studio or Scratch). Ozobots are great tools for integrating math and science content, and even art, social studies, and ELA! The Ozobot Bit Classroom kit includes 18 robots and 18 sets of colored markers and code sheets to support up to 25-30 students. Check out the Ozobot online community for ideas and lessons to engage your students! iPads with Ozobot apps are available upon request for implementation with Ozoblockly coding.
The 550 Universal Interface has two sensor ports plus an analog control interface with built-in temperature and voltage sensors with probes and USB or Bluetooth connection. Can be used with iPads, laptops, Chromebooks or Android tablets. Recommended for use with the Pasco Newton's Laws kit.
The Advanced Water Quality Sensor allows students to measure multiple water parameters individually or simultaneously. Parameters include pH, temperature, conductivity (salinity), pressure and dissolved oxygen. A great addition for field trips or for use with water filtration kits!
Measure the concentration of carbon dioxide for experiments in respiration, photosynthesis, chemical reactions, air quality and more. Great for use alone or with other sensors via the Pasco EcoZone System!
Bring to life the Doppler Effect concept with a simple and fun Doppler Rocket activity. Students will hear the change in pitch as the Doppler Rocket approaches them.
The EcoZone System was designed to help students understand the interactions within different ecosystems. The three clear acrylic Eco Chambers are rugged and easy to set up and clean and they are designed to accommodate Pasco sensors to allow quantitative measurement of a wide range of real-time environmental parameters.
Measure the volumetric flow rate and temperature of aquatic and marine field sites using a 3 to 7-foot telescoping rod. Great for field activities and measuring variation along different locations and depths of a stream or intertidal zone.
Measure up to 50 Newtons (11.2 lb-force) of force in the direction of this sensor. Applications include force measurement during collisions, force of a pendulum, and force exerted by an oscillating object.
Attach the Goniometer to your arm or leg to measure angular position, velocity, and acceleration. Combine it with the Force Sensor to measure the power required to lift an object.
