Spark Learning Systems
Thank you so much for the grant money for our Spark Learning Systems. This is 21st century technology.
My 7th graders have integrated these computers in with our body systems unit. We have implemented the graphing component along with heart beats per minute and put together tables that compare student's heart rates at rest and heart rates with movement. We have also used the temperature probe to see that adding salt to water does increase the rate at which it begins to boil. The science probes are wonderful hands on tools that our students are seeing and more experiments we are conducting. Our next experiment with the Spark probes is to use the motion and speed sensor. We have already gone over this in Unit 2, but we are going outside and working with distance, speed and motion. Thanks so much for the new technology.
