Possibility of free datalogger

Post by shawn » Mon Feb 26, 2007 4:44 pm

Workshop participant John Kelly wrote me a note about a company that awards a free datalogger to teachers who submit a winning application:

"Not all applicants get one after reading the smaller print... The projects need to be vetted and a photo provided," writes John. The logger is apparently a versatile attachment to a serial port on your computer, allowing your computer to record multiple channels of information provided by transducers you supply. The logger comes with software.

Vernier recommendation from a math teacher

Post by shawn » Fri May 25, 2007 1:54 pm

I just got a note from a Mr. A who teaches math in California:
Vernier's new data logger is exceptional. It dispenses with the need of a calculator (which I appreciated, but is actually a problem). The Vernier radiation detector worked well for me.
This teacher keeps a web site with some interesting notes:
