Agricultural Science Starter Lab Station
This Agriculture Starter Lab Station includes the wireless temperature, conductivity, colorimeter, carbon dioxide and pH sensors used to perform key lab activities from the Agricultural Science Lab Manual.
The Agricultural Science Starter Lab Station makes it easy and affordable to begin using sensor-based technology in your classroom or home. Inside the Starter Lab Station are the wireless sensors used to perform 10 agriculture labs. Using these 10 lab printouts, students can investigate soil and water quality, greenhouse gases, cellular processes of diffusion in plants, respiration and photosynthesis. Students will also work to extract and separate pigments from leaves, determine the energy content stored in plant-based food materials, and model ecosystems using factors that create challenging and optimal growing conditions. All 13 labs are accessible from PASCO’s Teacher Resource Center and are available to those who establish a login. Available separately is the Agricultural Science Extension Lab Station (EB-6335) which, when combined with the Agricultural Starter Lab Station, comprises all the wireless sensors used to perform the 13 labs in the complete Agricultural Science manual.
