“It takes photographs, video clips, time lapse, operates as a webcam, and has a measurement
feature. It is so easy to use that my four-year-olds mastered it in one day! It is durable, and the price is right. I leave it out and the students are able to use it independently. I have other technological tools, such as iPads, [a] projector, [an iPod] Nano, flip cameras, and digital cameras—but my
favorite … tool is the SmartScope!” by

"The smartscope is AMAZING. I love using it on the computer to really analzye objects/specimens, and my students really enjoy seeing the images magnified. Thank you." by

"The Smart scope is working great!! My kindergarteners LOVE it!" by
Karen -- Ohio
"I apologize..... :)
I totally doubted these microscopes when I got the email and thought "whatever! They're going to sit in the closet like the other ones because they'll be too hard to use.."
I was totally wrong....they ARE super EASY! :)" -- Library Media Specialist by

Product Code: 3150
Rather than simply measuring surface temperature, this sensor measures the energy transfer from or to an object in Watts per square meter.
When the sensor is placed against a flat surface, the differences in the rate of temperature changes between the two sides of the sensor are used to determine the flow of heat. Objects warmer than their environment show a positive heat flow, whereas those cooler show a negative value.

Heatflow to cold objects
Heatflow from hot objects
Heat loss from the body e.g. through clothes; from different parts of the body etc.
Heat flow or loss in buildings e.g. through single and double-glazed windows; from different materials used for glazing; different areas of a door; different building materials.
Range: ± 2kWm²
Resolution: 1 Watt/sq. metre
Operating temperature range: -25°C to 85°C
The Heatflow sensor is designed to measure the flow of heat energy between its upper and lower surfaces giving a bi-directional output in Watts/m². The sensing area is a thermopile consisting of 400 thermocouples set in resin for protection.
Tips for use: When using the heatflow sensor, it should be attached to the test surface using adhesive tape or a rubber band, and left in position for at least 2 minutes to stabilise. (Holding it in position with your hand will produce false readings.) If used on a metallic or glass surface which have low emissivity, attach aluminium foil to the sensor with double sided adhesive tape to improve accuracy.
