Vu Temperature Sensor   Home / Primary Sensors  

This general-purpose Temperature sensor is the most commonly used sensor in the range. It can accurately measure the temperature of air, water, soil and weak acidic solutions.

Suitable Activities:

  • Exploring how warm or cold e.g.
    • Are your hands warmer than mine?
    • How warm is our classroom?
    • How to decide when it is hot or when it is cold?
    • How does exercise change us?
  • Recording e.g.
    • Temperature game
    • Cooling rates
    • Goldilocks
    • How does temperature change as you heat water?
  • Monitoring using 2 Temperature sensors e.g.
    • Hot drinks
    • What shall I wear today?
    • Too hot!
    • Keeping warm!
  • Investigating e.g.
    • Our Room
    • How heat changes against time.
  • Observation e.g
    • When materials combine, there will be a reaction.
  • Insulation investigations e.g.
    • Heat gain and loss (See also the Vu Power house)
  • Changing of state e.g.
    • Freezing and melting of water, Hot water
  • Earth, Sun and Moon e.g.
    • Seasons
  • Environment: e.g.
    • Habitats
    • Pond and river studies
    • What’s different?
    • Bug Alert.
  • Solar energy
  • Respiration e.g.
    • Decay


°C: -30 to +110, 0 to 110, 0 to 50
