Evaluate structure and material strength.
- Highschool and college physics
- Operational range: 1 to 1000 N
- Positive stop to prevent sensor damage
The new Go Direct® structures and materials tester helps students evaluate structure and material strength by measuring the applied load and deflection and graphing the resulting data in real time. It connects via Bluetooth® wireless technology or via USB to your device. This tester gives teachers a great way to motivate their students when it is used for engineering activities and competitions with the free Go Direct® Bridge Competition Software. The tester also includes NGSS-aligned Materials Testing: Beams to Bridges e-book, providing engaging engineering investigations to get started.
Tester is an excellent tool for teaching engineering concepts and design process. Students evaluate truss, bridge, or other structure strength by measuring the applied load and deflection and graphing the resulting data in real time. Students can more easily apply the redesign phase of the engineering design process, as the tester will cause the weakest element of a structure to fail, leaving the remaining elements in tact.
Get your students learning right away with the included NGSS-aligned Materials Testing: Beams to Bridges e-book. Students complete these engaging activities to investigate various materials and structures. Topics include beams, trusses, determining modulus of elasticity, and bridges.
Boost student motivation and learning with bridge-building competitions. Go Direct® Bridge Competition Software provides immediate, side-by-side comparisons of structure strength for your entire class. The software provides real time graphing, giving students immediate feedback on bridge performance.
Delivery information: Includes: Go Direct® structures and material tester, materials testing: beams to bridges with Go Direct® structures and materials tester e-book, tackle kit, free download: Go Direct® bridge competition software, assembly instructions, USB micro cable.
