Using Probes in your classroom
Educational Benefits of using probes
Different Probes that can be used in the classroom
Another probe that would be well suited for all of your major sciences would be the spectrometer probe. Being able to break down components into their different wavelengths would be a bonus in living environment, earth science, chemistry, and physics. Living environment could use this spectrometer to measure the absorption rates of samples of DNA, proteins, and other household items such as aspirin. Earth science could use this to make determinations about the electromagnetic spectrum of the suns energy. Chemistry could use this identify elements based upon the spectral lines that the elements leave behind. Lastly, physics could use a mass spectrometer to determine the molecular weight of a sample.
