[Editor’s note: This is a post from our education blogger Adam] I have created a preliminary shield that allows for the interface of both analog and digital Vernier (www.vernier.com) sensors to the Arduino. The main idea is that an Arduino is significantly cheaper, and in my opinion more effective, then “black box” interfaces. Not to mention that using an Arduino opens the door to having the students explore just how sensors work.
So, please take the following survey and let me know what you think!
