SPARK, Handheld Device

Hardware, $299 (basic package)

Available at the end of October, the SPARK unit is a lightweight, rugged, portable handheld device designed to provide students with a rich visual connection to science experiments through an intuitive icon-based touch screen interface. SPARK units come preloaded with standards-based content that fully integrates data collection, analysis and student response. Both a temperature and a voltage sensor are included to enable immediate use right out of the box, while 60 other types of sensors are available for purchase. Two USB ports enable connection to a computer, printer or flash drive, and a rechargeable battery allows all-day use in the classroom, lab or field. Versatile enough for a variety of ages and grade levels, the SPARK system is available in a basic package ($299) or in specific starter kits with appropriate accessories for areas including elementary and middle school science ($389), or high school physics ($339), chemistry ($389), biology ($599) or earth science ($359).
