PASCO Unveils SPARKvue for the iPadFree Science App Now Available for iPad, iPod touch and iPhone (June 28, 2010)
DENVER, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 06/28/10 -- Educators attending the International Society for Technology in Education conference here are among the first to experience PASCO® scientific's SPARKvue App optimized for the iPad. The data collection and analysis software creates an environment for real-time measurement, data visualization and analysis that students can use wherever they go, inside or outside the classroom.
Students can measure a wide range of phenomena -- including pH, temperature, force and carbon dioxide level -- by connecting any one of PASCO's PASPORT® sensors to the iPad, iPhone, or iPod® touch via the PASPORT Airlink2, a Bluetooth® wireless sensor interface. SPARKvue can also record data from the device's internal accelerometers with no additional hardware needed. Data can be collected and displayed in graphs, digits, and meters and summarized with statistics.
SPARKvue for the iPad is part of PASCO's SPARKscience platform, a global 21st century science learning experience that integrates real scientific investigation with an entire research-based learning process that includes sensor-based data collection, interactive visualization, data analysis and assessment. The SPARKscience platform supports a wide range of displays and analysis tools commonly found in schools, including the all-in-one SPARK Science Learning System, Windows and Mac-based computers, interactive whiteboards, netbooks, and, now, handheld devices such as iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
The SPARKvue App is available in English and can be downloaded for free from the App Store(SM). PASPORT Airlink2 and PASPORT sensors are sold separately. For more information visit the PASCO website at www.pasco.com/iPhone or call 800-772-8700.
