The icon based, easy-to-use, yet powerful software used in PASCO's SPARK Science Learning System is now available for use on classroom computers. Its touch screen capabilities remain intact and can be utilized on any platform featuring touch screen capability.
SPARKvue was designed to be a solution for science students of all levels -- simple enough for elementary-level learners but with the features to suit the needs of advanced physics, chemistry, biology or environmental science students. The key is that SPARKvue has a layered interface which doesn't overburden the user with tools, but reveals powerful capabilities when needed.
And the bold, full-color interface allows you to use media-rich content to grab students' attention and keep them engaged. You can create your own labs with any graphics or text that you wish or purchase the set of over 60 SPARKlabs we have created for every subject area.
SPARKvue - the simple, convenient, reliable and complete solution to using probeware in your classroom.
The Only Integrated Science Labs
SPARKlabs are complete science activities designed for use with the SPARKvue software. Each lab contains the background information, materials & setup instructions, and data collection all in one place as well as prompts for students to answer questions, make predictions and analyze their results throughout.
There are SPARKlabs in the areas of Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science and Physics as well as SPARKlabs designed specifically for Middle and Elementary school students.
No more flipping back and forth on photocopied lab handouts or worrying that students haven't read the necessary background info before coming to class - with SPARKlabs the information is presented in a stepwise fashion, as it is needed.
Students are presented with the background information to read and then are immediately asked to demonstrate their understanding by answering questions. And just as with data they collect or analysis questions afterward, any and all student input is captured in their electronic journal with the push of a button. These saved screens can be printed out and turned in or easily collected by the teacher with a flashdrive. This initial offering of 61 SPARKlabs provides a foundation for any of the major sciences, but there are plenty more in the works.
