Probes Introduction
Why Probes?

When we began this project, we quickly found that the teachers we were working with had very limited access to technology resources, including computers. While there were computer labs in most of the schools, they were often fully booked and used primarily by computer teachers who had their own curriculum.

In addition, our teachers had difficulty finding opportunities to engage in meaningful scientific inquiry and saw tremendous possibilities for developing hands-on inquiries with their students by using probes. As a result, the Probemobile has become one of our primary means of making hands-on science investigations using real-time data available to our teachers and their students.
