LearnSprout Dashboard App
This application provides instant visual analysis of data stored within a school or district’s student information system (SIS). Administrators will be able to identify at-risk students, spot trends, and measure a variety of correlations using live attendance, grades, and various student demographic data. As more schools purchase the app, LearnSprout could also provide administrators with aggregated state and national trends based on this data. The app is free for schools and districts.
Mini GC Plus
Designed for high school science classrooms, the Mini GC Plus is a portable instrument that students can use for separating, analyzing and identifying substances contained in a volatile liquid or gaseous sample. It offers an increased maximum column temperature of 160ºC and a MEMS chip sensor that can be set at either of two levels of sensitivity. The standard sensitivity mode works well for polar compounds such as ketones, alcohols, and esters, while the high-sensitivity mode works well for compounds such as halogenated alkanes and substituted aromatics, as well as mixtures with one or more compounds of low concentration.
