2. Go Direct Force and Acceleration (and the Go Direct series): tie-in with Scratch

Scratch 3 is a free, browser-based programming language that is designed for students ages 8 to 16 and supported by an active community of millions of users. Students can use Scratch to design music videos, animations, and video games while learning the fundamentals of coding. Scratch encourages you to share your work and “remix” others’ projects to create something new. The limitation of programming is the connection to real world situation.

The partnership between Vernier Software & Technology and Scratch creates the ability to integrate data-collection technology into science and computer science activities. With this integration, students can learn coding by purposefully and successfully applying their skills to fun, hands-on coding projects. This helps students make natural connections between the digital and physical worlds. Go Direct Force and Acceleration package is directly accessible from Scratch website. Other Go Direct series sensors will soon be accessible, making many connection to real world sensing possible through programming.

4. Arduino Interface Shield

The Vernier Arduino Interface Shield provides a convenient way to make connections from Arduino microcontrollers to Vernier sensors. The Vernier Arduino Interface Shield plugs directly on top of the Arduino and adds two BTA (analog) and two BTD (digital) sockets. This shield was developed to be used with the SparkFun Arduino RedBoard but will work with the Arduino Uno and other Uno equivalents like the Leonardo. It also works with the Intel Galileo.

Sample code is provided on the Vernier website which will support auto-ID for all Vernier sensors and will get you started with writing your own data-collection programs. Works with over 80 Vernier sensors with BTA and BTD connectors.
