The Science Exploration Wand is an inexpensive device which can be placed on top of the TrackPoint and is used to explore various physical concepts. Some examples are:

  • Postage Scale (weight/mass)
  • Windspeed (anemometer)
  • Earthquake detector (seismograph)
  • Automotive G-forces (accelerometer)
  • Thickness (caliper)

This simple add-on targets K-12 students and educators.
