Dataloggers

We use dataloggers to help with your child learning. Sometimes when doing an experiment much time can be taken recording results. Although these are very important skills to learn, sometimes and with limited time available we can use dataloggers to record all the information so your child can see the pattern and understand this rather than just learning how to record and missing the point of the experiment.

Using a pH SensorUsing state of the art sensors connected to a computer we can carry out the experiments and pull out all the information about the process quickly and accurately and get to the learning point. Using these sensors we can also pull out other useful information which is otherwise not readily available to learn more about the processes. The dataloggers cover all aspects of Science and also cover all the A level Biology Chemistry and Physics. The data loggers are used in Chemistry to determine the pH and temperature, in Biology to record levels of gases, in Physics to record motion and voltage. The dataloggers also enable many other complex machines to be added such as colorimeters.

The sensors are linked directly to the computer. They capture data every few fractions of a second and send this to the computer where the data is displayed in a table for the student to work on or more usefully as a graph to display the features of the experiment.

The dataloggers enable far more complex experiments to be carried out and in a fraction of the time taken to do the experiments manually. This is also good preparation for business where things are usually carried out by machine and the students can see for themselves how processes work Sparkvue Softwarein a more business like and professional manner.

We have a wide range of sensors (more added each month) to automate and improve the learning experience for each child. Using this datalogging equipment gives the child an advantage over others so that they can become better scientists.
