Suggested Middle School Order of Vernier Equipment

ITA suggests that you order sufficient items for the number of lab groups you use. The normal group size is 4 students. We suggest that group sizes of 3 is better with group sizes of two being optimal. A school should select as many of each item as they feel is necessary for their situation. Schools with content areas sharing a lab will be able to use some equipment for more than one course.

Many of these probes and sensors can also be used in Anatomy and Physiology as well as in Environmental Science.

Note: You will also need Graphical Analysis Software.
Note: Schools that Subscribe to the ITA Site qualify for special pricing on each item.
