Abstract

Polytechnic University and four public high schools in New York City (NYC) are partners in a project focused on enhancing the educational experience of students through the integration of modern sensing and data acquisition technologies into science labs. Computerized data acquisition and sensor-based science labs are believed to excite students' hidden curiosity for science, impart technology literacy, allow for exploring scientific concepts, and interest students to strive for achievement in science and math courses. This paper presents some of the developed sensor-based physics experiments along with the motivation and preliminary observations.
