To further support collaborative STEM learning, Vernier Software & Technology recently launched LabQuest 3. This standalone data-collection platform takes the award-winning LabQuest interface and enhances it with a robust set of new features and functionality for middle school, high school, and college students to use during classroom, laboratory, or field investigations.

“LabQuest 3 makes it easier than ever for students to collect, analyze, and interact with data as they engage in hands-on scientific discovery,” said John Wheeler, CEO of Vernier Software & Technology. “The platform’s full set of new features—from its capacitive touch screen to its compatibility with our complete family of Go Direct® wireless sensors—really take the data-collection experience to the next level for students.”

LabQuest 3 is a full-featured platform highlighted by a large, high-resolution color screen, and intuitive software navigation using gestures, which can be a faster, more ergonomic way to interact with the screen. LabQuest 3 also offers robust wireless capabilities that provide students the ability to collect data anywhere when using the device. Students can connect LabQuest 3 to any of the Go Direct sensors using Bluetooth® wireless technology or, if needed, easily connect to wired Vernier sensors. With Wi-Fi wireless connectivity, students can collect and share data with multiple devices—including computers, Chromebooks, or mobile devices running Vernier Graphical Analysis—for a hands-on, collaborative learning experience.

LabQuest 3 has built-in software, the LabQuest App, which provides students with real-time graphing and analysis capabilities using a single handheld device. LabQuest 3 features applications such as a periodic table, sound recorder, calculator, and more, as well as student instructions for more than 75 of Vernier Software & Technology’s most popular experiments. Educators can also use LabQuest Viewer software, available as a separate purchase, to share their LabQuest 3 screen during in-class instruction or with students participating in remote learning.

The platform additionally offers fast data collection with 100,000 samples per second; a rechargeable, high-capacity battery; a built-in GPS and microphone; and more.
