“SONGS FROM THE STELLAR GRAVEYARD: Probing the Cosmos in Gravitational Waves
Dr. Shane Larson, Associate Director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA) at Northwestern University

W1. Quarknet Workshop (Saturday 1pm-5pm)

W2. IOLab – a multi-sensor device for K1-College (Saturday 1pm-5pm)

Morten Lundsgaard, Physics Department, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

The IOLab is a wireless data acquisition system of similar size and weight as a graphing calculator, and thus highly portable.  It contains more than twenty sensors or inputs, including a 3D accelerometer, a 3D magnetometer, a 3D gyroscope, wheels which record position, velocity, and acceleration, a force probe, and both analog and digital inputs. Data can be analyzed in the IOLab software itself, or can be exported to a comma separated value file for later analysis.

In the workshop, the participants will first complete some the open-ended labs that we are currently introducing in the introductory physics courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Next, participants can explore the many features of the IOLab at various stations including a two-wire ECG-measurement! Participants will get access to an online course that contains prelab and lab ideas for both high school and college and be introduced to how students can share their measurements with each other and with their teacher.

To make the IOLab experience more authentic, participants should bring their own computer, pc or mac, to the workshop.

For more information on the IOLab, see iolab.science.
