“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

"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: 3175
Useful for all ages, this dual range sensor accurately measures both sound pressure level in decibels (dBA) or waveform (mV).
To make the measurements meaningful to learners, the sensor has been designed to approximate the normal human ear in the range and intensity that it 'hears' sounds.

Noise pollution indoors and outdoors
40 to 110 dBA
±2000 mV (Waveform)
The Sound sensor is an electret microphone with a broad frequency response (100 Hz to 7 kHz). It has a sufficiently fast response to allow for the measurement of speed of sound and to capture waveforms. It is equally responsive to all sound frequencies within its range and can measure both transient and continuous noise.
