DESCRIPTION

Science teachers who want to bring an inquiry-based, hands-on approach to their middle school classrooms can enable their students to think and act like real scientists with the Science Kit Physics Lab.

Developed in partnership with Google, the kit challenges students to explore and explain the physics behind amusement park rides. They examine forces, motion, magnetism, and conductivity, make their own hypotheses like real scientists, then check their assumptions and log data on the Arduino Science Journal app, a digital notebook for conducting and documenting science experiments in real-time.

No prior coding experience is needed - students can simply run their experiments straight out of the box with plug-and-play projects.

Science Kit Physics Lab includes all the hardware and software needed to assemble and conduct nine fun physics experiments based on favorite amusement park rides, covering electromagnetism, thermodynamics, kinetics, and kinematics.

The kit includes a range of sensors to measure light, temperature, motion, and magnetic fields, along with a set of props and access to online course content for both teachers and students. You’ll just need to provide a few essential classroom supplies (pencils, rulers, etc.) and a LiPo battery.Curriculum

The projects featured in Science Kit Physics Lab are aligned with several national curricula for students aged 11-14 including the Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS) for K-12 in the U.S. and the National Curriculum of England, which is used in international schools across the world. Curriculum links are provided within the educators’ software platform. Additionally, these lessons teach students important 21st-century skills such as problem-solving and critical thinking.

FEATURES

The Science Kit Physics Lab comes with nine exciting hands-on projects together with an online learning platform for both students and educators.

The platform includes teacher guides and printable student worksheets, a detailed glossary, tutorial section and building instructions. The students will learn about:

  • Electromagnetism and thermodynamics
    • ELECTRIC FORTUNE TELLER: Investigate resistivity and voltage of different materials
    • BUZZ WIRE: Steadiest hand wins! Build a conductive ‘maze’ and then try to avoid the buzzer as you guide the loop around your course
    • HAUNTED HOUSE THEREMIN: Did you hear that? Make a paranormal noise with a magnet
    • THERMO MAGIC SHOW: It’s not magic, it’s science! Learn how different materials conduct or insulate heat
  • Kinetics and kinematics
    • The DROP ZONE: Can you slide faster than your friends? Explore gravity and measure the acceleration of your Arduino board
    • The GRAVITRON: Scream if you want to go faster! Learn about rotations per minute, circular motion, the force required to spin this ride, and the relationship to centrifugal forces
    • The PIRATE SHIP: Captain the ship and test the oscillation of a pendulum
    • The EJECTION SEAT: 3… 2… 1… Ignition! Make your board bounce to learn about harmonic motion
    • The SPHEROTRON: Don’t get dizzy… Learn more about potential energy and motion
