PASCO Scientific’s New Wireless Sensors Allow Students to Gain Deeper Understanding, Reveal the Invisible, and Unleash Their Imaginations
  • PASCO’s wireless sensors are the first in science education to be compatible across all operating system platforms
ROSEVILLE, CALIF.--(Business Wire/Korea Newswire) January 7, 2016 -- Sensor-based lab investigations provide rich opportunities for students to deepen their science understanding and develop hands-on experience using tools like those used by real-life scientists and engineers. PASCO® Scientific, a global leader in 21st century science education, today introduces the first and only line of wireless sensors that are compatible with multiple technology platforms, including Windows®, Mac®, iPad® and iPhone®, Android™ tablets and phones, and Chromebooks.

The new line, which includes wireless pH, temperature, pressure, and force/acceleration sensors, simplifies lab setup and removes the clutter of cables. As a result, students can now spend more time exploring, and perform experiments that were difficult or impossible before. The wireless technology also helps schools save money by eliminating the need for a separate device to connect sensors to a computer, tablet or smartphone. Students can simply transmit the data directly from the wireless sensor to their device.

With U.S. prices starting at $39, PASCO’s wireless sensors provide an affordable way for teachers to integrate sensors into their instruction to support inquiry-based learning. Further, with battery lives of a semester, a year, or even longer, teachers do not have to worry about whether their sensors are ready to use.

“PASCO was the first to offer wireless and mobile capabilities in education in 2009 with our Airlink sensor interface, and many others have followed our example since then. Our commitment to innovation is driven by our mission to transform science education for teachers and students worldwide,” said Steven Korte, CEO of PASCO. “With the new wireless sensors, teachers can implement dynamic tools to empower students to think and act like scientists and apply that thinking to real-world situations. It’s more than just memorizing facts. When students can measure and analyze — and see the invisible — they become more engaged and unleash their curiosity in science.”

PASCO wireless sensors are Bluetooth® Smart accessories and require Bluetooth Smart devices, or a USB Bluetooth adapter available from PASCO. The wireless sensors can also be used with PASCO’s full line of more than 80 PASPORT® (http://goo.gl/SDSs5Z) sensors that allow students to take practically any measurement whether inside or outside the lab. PASCO’s economical Airlink interface (http://goo.gl/ZjfDm7) allows users to connect the PASPORT sensors wirelessly via Bluetooth or directly connect via USB port.
