Special Note:

The initial release of SPARKvue 2.0 will not support spectrometers. This spectrometer capability is being rebuilt and improved, and will be delivered later this year. So you may wish to remain on SPARKvue 1.4 until we notify you that the spectrometer capability for SPARKvue 2.0 is available (Windows users can have both 2.0 and 1.4 installed simultaneously). Further, if you use both computers and SPARK Science Learning Systems, you may wish to delay updating, so that all your devices are running the same software, as SPARK Science Learning System cannot currently support SPARKvue 2.0.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes you. If you have any questions at all regarding this or there is something we can do to help you through this transition, we encourage you to contact our teacher support team (see contact information below).

SPARK Science Learning System users:

The SPARKvue 2.0 update will not be available for SPARK Science Learning System. If you are using your spectrometers with SPARK Science Learning System, you can continue to do so.
