A robust app to engage STEM students in advanced data analysis

App of the Week

The Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro app from Vernier Software & Technology engages students—either remotely or in the lab—in advanced analysis of data from biology, chemistry, and physics experiments. With the new Graphical Analysis Pro app, users can insert, view, and sync a video to sensor data for inspection and analysis.

Graphical Analysis Pro inspires students to explore crucial science concepts with its illustrative experiment videos and interactive graphing capabilities. Students can analyze data in new complex and insightful ways. With this app, educators can perform live experiments for students learning remotely and share the data with them in real time for immediate analysis.
