PASCO have produced quick data collection videos and PASCO Capstone data files to support educators seeking remote lab opportunities. Each college-level lab covers content required by universities and does not require any lab equipment. Students watch a short video showing the data collection part of the lab, then perform the analysis using the data provided in the PASCO Capstone file. The associated student lab handout guides them and is available for free download. Educators have free access to each lab’s teacher guide after creating an educator account.
Below is the current list of free Physics labs and videos that support remote learning:
Free Access to PASCO Capstone Software
For Physics educators transitioning to remote teaching and home labs, we suggest utilising PASCO Capstone’s free 6-month trial. If your university is already using Capstone, then you have global rights to share your license key with students for home installation.
Capstone Lab Workbooks
Lecturers can use Capstone Lab Workbooks to collect data, then share their workbook and data with students for independent analysis. We recommend sharing a quick video of the data being collected to give students context for their data analysis and post-lab questions. You can check out PASCO’s prepared Capstone Workbooks with sample data here.
Curriculum: Free Access to Essential Physics 3rd Edition
To support educators and students as they transition to remote learning during the COVID-19 university closures, we are granting free access to the Essential Physics 3rd Edition Student eBook and Teacher eResources for the remainder of the 2020 academic year. The Student eBook includes a full year of curriculum that can be used for AP, IB, and algebra-based Physics courses. Access the eBook here using the access code below.
