Computer Interfacing

What you need to get going


Either Macintosh or PC computers may be used.

Computer Software

Data Logger is the primary software program to use. You may also want Heart Rate Monitor and Sound.

Computer Stations

Here are a few suggestions for setting up a computer lab station.


Each lab station will require one interface. Many computer interfacing companies are available, including Vernier, LEAP, and Champ. Since my experience is with Vernier, I will be describing their equipment and software. If your school has invested in another system, most of the actual labwork might easily be modified to work for you.


Here's a list of recommended probes and sensors.
