SAIL
Sensors and Instrument Lab

This page show some of the student activities in G318 in the SAIL. The lab was establised by Curt D. Peterson, Ben Perkins, and Kenneth M. Cruikshank

This is an undergraduate teaching laboratory that houses sensors that are used in a variety of courses. Equipment consistes of a collection of Vernier(R) sensors and data loggers, Hobo(R) data loggers, BASICStamp microcontroller sensor kits, and miscellaneous sensors and data loggers.

Funding for the equipment came from Student Lab Fees and a technology grant from PSU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the University Studies Program
