Cost-effective spectral sensing kits bring the excitement of spectroscopy to the classroom

To inspire today’s tech savvy students, Ocean Optics has released two new Education Packs, built around its STS microspectrometer and Spark spectral sensor. With the kit hardware and commonly available samples, teachers can integrate absorbance, transmission, fluorescence, emission and pH measurements into their curricula, bringing spectroscopy concepts to life. Modular and flexible, the Education Packs are a budget-friendly option compared to the cost of purchasing all the included hardware individually.

The kits package a small-footprint spectral sensing system and illuminated cuvette holder (EDU-STS-VIS-PACK) or direct attach cuvette holder accessory (EDU-SPARK-PACK) with the ideal combination of accessories and software. The included components can be assembled in multiple configurations to perform several types of measurements. By purchasing Education Packs, educators can save up to 40% off the retail cost of the components if purchased separately.

The EDU-STS-VIS-PACK covers the wavelengths of 350-800 nm while the EDU-SPARK-PACK provides measurement over the range of 380-700 nm. Both are capable of multiple types of spectral measurements demonstrating several different spectroscopy concepts, including:

  • Absorbance: Beer’s Law
  • Emission: Atomic emission
  • Fluorescence: Excited state molecules
  • pH: Henderson Hasselbalch
  • Transmission: Color measurement

To support educators in using the kits, Ocean Optics has established an educational resource page at https://oceanoptics.com/educational-resources. The page contains experiments and teaching materials to help educators get started, and is expected to grow as members of the user community share their own experiments and materials. The range of experiments are geared from high school, to community college, and up to university level.
