Advanced STEM Kit
The PocketLab Advanced STEM Kit helps you explore velocity, acceleration, position, forces, momentum, magnetism, pressure, energy, and more! The kit includes a cart you can assemble in a few minutes, and other accessories to perform several experiments.
This kit includes the PocketLab Advanced STEM Kit car & materials. The PocketLab Voyager and PocketLab One sensors are purchased separately.
The PocketLab Advanced STEM Kit give you the materials needed to do the specific activities listed below. The PocketLab Advanced STEM Kit works well with either PocketLab One, or PocketLab Voyager. You can find ideas for dozens and dozens of other PocketLab activities here. PocketLab is also great for investigating your own scientific questions with authentic data collection.
- Parts to build a low friction dynamics cart
- Parts to create experiments with collisions, Atwood machines, magnetism, harmonic motion, pressure and more
- Dozens of free to download on-line activities
Experienced STEM educators, scientists, and educational researchers have developed the library of PocketLab activities that emphasizes the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) from 4th grade through high school. University professors and researchers have also developed AP-level and university-level experiments that dive deep into physics and engineering concepts. You can find all of the lessons on the PocketLab Educator pages.
