Exploring Heat and Temperature

In this unit students learn how to warm things up and discover the differences between heat sources and heat insulators.

Activity III. Keeping warm

In this unit students investigate in which ways the heat can be transferred and how to cool things faster.

Activity VI. How to cool faster

In this unit students are introduced to the concept of melting. They find the melting temperature of ice and observe the change of this temperature after adding salt.

Activity VII. Melting

In this unit students measure the temperature change during a chemical reaction of vinegar and baking soda.

Activity IX. A Chemical reaction

Exploring Light

In this unit students learn how to work with the €Sense's light sensor and measure light brightness of different light sources.  

Activity I. How bright?

In this unit students use the light sensor to measure light reflected from different materials.

Activity IV. Reflected light

Exploring Sound

In this unit students explore how sound is produced, they use the sound sensor to record the sound of a tuning fork and to display its sound waveform.

Activity I. What is sound

In this unit students learn that sounds need a medium to travel and can travel not only via air but also via other materials.

Activity III. Making musical sounds

In this unit students use the sound sensor and measure the sound intensity of different sounds. The sound sensor works as a sound level meter and measures sound level in decibels (dB).

Activity V. How loud?

In this unit students realise that sound can cause hearing damage and investigate ways of decreasing sound intensity.

Activity VI. Stop that noise
