Explore changes in light, temperature and sound within your school
NEW Set of 3 Sonic Sensors £36.95
Explore your environment with these simple devices. The Sonic Sensors can be used to monitor light, sound and temperature changes within your setting. Ideal for introducing the concept of ‘more than’ and ‘less than’ in early scientifi c enquiries. Simply hold down the button and watch the LEDs change as you move around. Each sensor includes a scale of 1-10, for comparative measurement. Having a helpful numbered scale alongside the LEDs, assists children who want to record their results in writing.
Compare and contrast different areas of the school and grounds. Are more LEDs illuminated on the temperature sensor inside or outside? Does the number of LEDs on the light sensor decrease when placed inside the cupboard? Do you get different readings by the window? Where is the coldest place in the school? Where is the noisiest location in the school?
The light and temperature sensors, both emit a beep to indicate higher or lower readings, although the sound functionality can also be disabled. When the button is released, the sensor switches off, saving power. Each sensor requires 2 x AA batteries.
