INSPIRATION

This may be my favorite section of the K12Lab website powered by NI LabView. It focuses on "People Doing Cool Stuff. With Cool Stuff." What better way to engage students than by showing them videos on what they can do and then letting them work on that project themselves. There are tons of attention getting ideas out there. Here are just a few titles to give you an idea: "Popcorn Tweets", "Controlling a Video Game with your Eyes", "Drive a car with iPhone and LabVIEW" and the "Knee Brace Simulator". Every video will list the hardware and software products used for the project as well as the different subjects covered, as well as resources to help you do the project for your classroom. You can also read great articles and submit your own ideas to inspire others.

There is so much that K12Lab offers, you really need to check it out yourself. There is plenty of information on LabVIEW. You can tour LabVIEW, see who uses it and find ways to breathe life into your STEM lessons. You can also see how the NI myDAQ, Vernier, Lego Mindstorms and Tetrix can be added to the mix. There are support features and much more. Check it out. National Instruments products are available at academic pricing at Studica.com.

Here is a great video that talks about how you can inspire your classroom with LabVIEW.
