The first official Arduino® kit designed for scientific exploration for middle school teachers and students, developed in collaboration with Google™.

Developed in partnership with Google, the Arduino Science Kit Physics Lab is an Arduino-based physics lab, fully compatible with Arduino Science Journal available on Android, iOS, and Chrome OS. The Arduino Education Science Kit Physics Lab provides middle school students (ages 11 to 14) with a hands-on experience, enabling them to explore forces, motion, and conductivity with their classmates. Students can make their own hypothesis like a real scientist, then check their assumptions, and log data thanks to Arduino's Science Journal app - a digital notebook for conducting and documenting science experiments using the unique capabilities of their own devices.

The kit, based on the Arduino MKR WiFi 1010, includes a range of sensors to measure light, temperature, motion, and magnetic fields; plus it comes with a set of props and full access to online course content for teachers and students to conduct nine exciting science projects inspired by popular fairground rides like the Gravitron and Pirate Ship. We recommend two students per kit.

Experiment with nine exciting science projects based upon these fairground favourites:

Electromagnetism and Thermodynamics

  • ELECTRIC FORTUNE TELLER: Investigate resistivity and voltage of different materials
  • BUZZ WIRE: Steadiest hand wins! Build a conductive 'maze' and then try to avoid the buzzer as you guide the loop around your course
  • HAUNTED HOUSE THEREMIN: Did you hear that? Make paranormal noise with a magnet
  • THERMO MAGIC SHOW: It's not magic, it's science! Learn about how different materials conduct or insulate heat

Kinetics and Kinematics

  • The DROP ZONE: Can you slide faster than your friends? Explore gravity and measure the acceleration of your Arduino board
  • The GRAVITRON: Scream if you want to go faster! Learn about rotations per minute, circular motion, the force required to spin this ride, and the relationship to centrifugal forces
  • The PIRATE SHIP: Captain the ship and test the oscillation of a pendulum
  • The EJECTION SEAT: 3 - 2 - 1 ignition! Make your board bounce to learn about harmonic motion
  • The SPHEROTRON: Don't get dizzy - Learn more about potential energy and motion

The projects featured in the kit have been aligned with several National curricula including the Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS) for K-12, and the National UK Curriculum.

Everything comes in a handy storage box for future use, with all the necessary parts to assemble and conduct experiments. The kit features a range of sensors to measure light, temperature, motion, magnetic fields, and most importantly, full access to online course content for teachers and students alike. You'll just need to provide a few essential classroom supplies (pencils, rulers, etc.) and a LiPo battery or a Power bank. If you own a Chromebook you'll get a free month on Create for Chrome OS. Access code to exclusive online course content and teachers' guidance notes and students' worksheets.
