Vernier Software & Technology has just published their second educational book for the NXT aimed at middle and high school students. STEM 2 with Vernier and LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT includes activities using Vernier’s Force Sensor, Magnetic Field Sensor, Voltage Probe, and Gas Pressure Sensor. It covers topics in physical science and engineering, including mechanics, pressure, electricity, and magnetism. Students are challenged to build and program robots for testing batteries, finding land mines, breaking string, tracking the sun, and controlling a Cartesian diver.
Vernier’s original STEM book covers topics in environmental science and engineering, including soil moisture, water quality, acidity, and UV radiation, using their pH Sensor, UVB Sensor, Temperature Probe, Conductivity Probe, and Soil Moisture Sensor. It has 14 labs and 4 projects, including an aquarium monitor, a plant watering system, and a sunscreen tester. Both books include all construction and programming instructions. You can download sample activities from the Vernier.com/NXT website.
