SPARKVue - Simple but Powerful
SPARKvue was designed to be a solution for science students of all levels -- simple enough for elementary-level learners but with the features to suit the needs of advanced physics, chemistry, biology or environmental science students.
The key is that SPARKvue has a layered interface which doesn't overburden the user with tools, but reveals powerful capabilities when needed.
And the bold, full-colour interface allows you to use media-rich content to grab students' attention and keep them engaged.
You can create your own labs with any graphics or text that you wish or purchase the set of over 60 SPARKlabs we have created for every subject area.
SPARKvue - the simple, convenient, reliable and complete solution to using probeware in your classroom.
Our 61 original SPARKlabs, which come preloaded with SPARKvue, are available for download.
SPARKvue works with....
SPARKvue is one of the few truly cross platform apps /software out today. Not only can users work with it on the Windows or Mac computers / laptops / netbooks they can also seamlessly use SPARKvue on their iPads, iPhones, Chromebooks, and most Android phones & tablets.
The software is the virtually the same for all devices so compatabilty is not an issue.
SPARKvue is the perfect software for schools that are instigating "Bring Your Own Device" policies for their students.
SPARKvue - The choice is yours.

SPARKlabs - Discovery-based, interactive lab activities
SPARKlab activities seamlessly integrate content with data collection and analysis. Fully self-contained, students are engaged throughout with self-check questions, prompts for predictions and assessment questions.
Teachers can design their own SPARKlabs or use labs created by PASCO and an ever growing list of partners.
We want you to experience how effective the integrated learning experience is with SPARKscience. So we include over 60 free SPARKlabs with every SPARK Science Learning System or SPARKvue license with a increasing library of additional titles availablefrom PASCO, Sally Ride, Carolina, Horizon, Pearson, Cider House Tech and more!
A 21st Century Discovery-Based Science Learning Environment
In a world where science and technology are an ever growing part of our daily lives the demand for science literacy has never been greater.
Students learn best, and engage more, with inquiry based teaching that puts modern tools and technologies in their own hands.
PASCO has developed the SPARKscience platform to provide students with hands-on learning that integrates interactive visualization, data collection and analysis in a meaningful and engaging way.
PASCO’s SPARKscience Named ‘Potential Game Changer’ in Education
SPARKscience landed a coveted spot on EdNET’s Best for 2011 list as one of the top five recipients in the Shining Stars category, which recognizes potential “game changers” in the education marketplace.
“As a 2011 ‘Shining Stars’ recipient, PASCO’s SPARKscience is believed to be one of the superstars of the education marketplace by the EdNET community and the EdNET’s Best panelists,” said Dr. Nelson Heller, President of EdNET, MDR.
“Being listed among the EdNET’s Best top five puts you on the shortlist of exemplary offerings in the education industry.”
Wonder, then measure - Over 70 Sensors
With over 70 available sensors students can measure virtually anything. With plug and play capabilities, any of the sensors can be connected and SPARKvue will immediately recognize it and be ready to collect data.
From experiments on weather to cellular respiration, from sound levels in an elementary school classroom to advanced optics in physics – PASPORT probeware provides the information needed for modern science activities.
And PASCO's exclusive MultiMeasure sensors pack even more functionality and value into one convenient sensor package. All background info, procedures, data collection and analysis is in one fluid environment.
SPARKvue is media rich, touch screen capable, and adapts to your classroom technology without a problem. Just connect our SPARKlink interface to use it on Macs & PCs, interactive white boards, netbooks, even iPads or iPod Touches. It also powers our standalone unit the SPARK.
The intuitive user interface makes for almost no learning curve which makes it easy to use with elementary and middle school learners but SPARKvue's ability to display data in any fashion you wish (digits, meter, table, graph) and open powerful analysis tools with the touch of the screen or mouse makes it robust enough for advanced high school or university applications as well.
Collect real-time sensor data, make predictions right on a graph and see the result, capture a snapshot of student work at any time with the journaling feature and create and edit student assessment prompts. Just a few of its many features.
