Considering the benefits and potentially damaging effects of exposure to the sun: This experiment uses the Labdisc Enviro model with the built-in UV sensor to measure and compare levels of ultraviolet radiation, through different types of filters.
Raising awareness about a key environmental issue, fresh water availability: This experiment uses the Labdisc Enviro model with the built-in turbidity sensor to measure and compare the turbidity (cloudiness) of different water sources.
Phase changes in Chemistry impacts a number of industries from transport, sustainable energy to cutting edge technologies such as fire fighters’ protective clothing. Using any Labdisc model and external temperature probe, students can relate temperature variations and heat transfer to better understanding how kinetic energy increases as water is transformed from solid to gas.
Governor Carlos Lozano of Aguascalientes, Mexico has introduced the Progreso Para Todos project, revitalizing the state with new industries, jobs and together with the Minister of Education Fernando Macias, a strong focus on 21st century science learning.
Three short movies from Moscow, Russia, show science teacher, Sergey Lowjagin and his 5th to 6th grade students performing engaging science experiments with the Labdisc.
