Vernier Software & Technology Uses Food Experiments to Engage Students in Chemistry Exploration

Vernier Software & Technology Uses Food Experiments to Engage Students in Chemistry Exploration

New high school- and college-level chemistry lab book features 14 ready-to-use hands-on investigations

PR Newswire

BEAVERTON, Ore., March 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Vernier Software & Technology recently launched a new lab book that uses food as a means to help high school and college students explore important chemistry concepts. Food Chemistry Experiments, which is available in both electronic and print versions, includes 14 ready-to-use experiments utilizing Vernier technology such as the Go Direct® SpectroVis® Plus Spectrophotometer, Go Direct Temperature Probe, and Go Direct CO2 Gas Sensor to help students investigate complex questions involving food.

"Students are more likely to engage with science when they can connect what they are learning to the real world," said John Wheeler, CEO of Vernier Software & Technology. "Exploring chemistry concepts using common foods and drinks is a perfect example of this real-world application. From learning about food energy to measuring pH levels, the new lab book provides easy-to-implement investigations to help engage students in chemistry exploration."

The new lab book features a range of investigations—including "Cooking Under Pressure," "My Flat Soda Pop," "True Colors: Separating Food Dyes," and "Quantifying Iron in Cereal"—that all use easily accessible materials found in most homes and use affordable wireless sensors that can be used with any mobile device, Chromebook, or computer.

Both the electronic and printed versions of the new lab book provide educators with electronic access to up-to-date versions of the experiments, as well as word-processing files that they can edit to match their teaching styles. Educators are also provided with helpful teaching tips, important discussion points, sample data and graphs, and detailed instructions for collecting data using the Vernier Graphical Analysis, Graphical Analysis™ Pro, Vernier Spectral Analysis™, or Vernier Instrumental Analysis™ apps.
