Abstract

The Vernier LabProTM equipped with various sensor probes is commonly used in many middle and high school science classes. Using these devices, students can measure and record a wide variety of physical parameters such as temperature, light intensity, voltage, and pressure. Squeak Etoys is a media authoring tool in which students can easily create engaging simulations of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) phenomena using a tile-based scripting language. This paper describes a novel interface developed by the USeIT project that allows a Vernier LabProTM to be used as an input device for Squeak models. This synergistic integration of two key technologies finds wide application in STEM classrooms.
