Independence Science product assist in compliance with ADA regulations and increase student confidence and comfort with science procedures, field studies, and lab experiments.

Products

Automatic Stir Station

Combination magnetic stirrer and ring stand, efficiently handles a wide range of beaker sizes from 50 mL to 1 liter.

Fine tune the auto stir speed (50-1250 RPM), and light up the glass beaker with three cool, white LEDs.

Use with the drop counter for accessible and independent acid-base titrations.

Drop Counter

 Use the Drop Counter to perform accurate titrations. This accessory greatly improves the process of using a dropper without vision.

Record the number of drops or calibrate the drop size to record volume of titrant added during a titration.  It may be used in conjunction with other sensors, such as a pH Sensor, Conductivity Probe, or ORP Sensor to perform conductimetric or potentiometric titrations.

Motion Detector

 Collect position, velocity, and acceleration data of moving objects. Use ultrasound to measure the position of carts, balls people, and other items.

With a 0.15 to 6 m range this versatile sensor works great in a physics or physical science classroom. Fun to play with and very precise it is often used in the classroom with students who are blind or visually impaired.

One single button on the Talking LabQuest starts/stops data collection and simultaneously records position, velocity and acceleration. Auto measuring up to every .1 seconds with this sensor easily record a tremendous amount of precise data.

pH Sensor

The Vernier pH sensor is custom calibrated and quick responding. It can be used across disciplines, including chemistry, biology, middle school science, and environmental science.

Most commonly used tool for the blind or visually impaired in a science course, this general-purpose pH sensor is equipped with the Talking LabQuest to measure pH more precisely than litmus paper.

Typical Activities using the pH Sensor Include:

  • Acid-base titrations
  • Studies of household acids and bases
  • Monitoring pH change during chemical reactions or in an aquarium as a result of photsynthesis
  • Investigations of acid rain and buffering
  • Analysis of water quality in streams and lakes
