BOSON Science Kit

1. Introduction

Boson science kit is a set of digitalized scientific exploration tools for a young scientist to build their hands-on STEM lab. Boson science kit brings kids: 8 scientific sensors for physics, chemistry, and biology. Activity cards that guide kids to start a scientific exploration on 8 different topics. Plug and play LED monitor for instant result display. Infinite possibilities of combining the sensors with micro: bit, Arduino, and other Boson modules. Boson science kit includes 8 sensors that are most widely used in modern IoT applications, all built with industrial standards. Unlike traditional science kits, Boson scientific sensors output an instant and accurate result in the form of electric signals. Setting up the device is extremely easy, and all the sensors can be used repetitively. The measurement can be read directly from the display module. Moreover, you can connect other Boson modules to create an automatic device, or use a micro: bit/Arduino to record the data and even upload it to a cloud server.



2. Introduction to Teaching Contents and Projects

The 12 experiments designed for this kit gives kids an excellent intro to science exploration. When graphing data from the experiments with Boson sensors, students can also learn chemistry and biology in practice.

Refer to NGSS curriculum standard, the course catalog and field distribution are shown below:

2.1 Project Introduction

Project Project Description
Experimentally measure the relative amount of light absorbed by various colors using the BOSON Temperature Sensor.
Develop an explanation as to why certain color clothing can increase or decrease our perceived degree of warmth or
coolness when playing outside.
In this lesson you will construct a temperature sensor with the Boson Kit. Using the waterproof temperature sensor, you
will be able track temperature changes in various kinds of coffee cups. The materials in each cup will affect energy transfer
differently. Will students be able to guess which cup keeps their teacher’s coffee hottest for the longest period of time?
In this lesson, the experiment will guide you to use a pH sensor to find out what kind of acidic or alkaline aqueous solutions
are there in life. Moreover, the measured values can even be displayed on a small screen!
In this lesson, we will use the BOSON to check whether the pH is approximately 7 and represents an aqueous solution neutral.
Except for the pH sensor used in the previous chapter , a waterproof temperature sensor is also used device to further learn
about the temperature change of the aqueous solution in this chapter.
Some liquids will show different colors at different pH values. In this lesson, we will explore what color will appear when the
pH of these solutions changes, and try to make a ‘good-looking drink’.
This lesson will guide you to set up controlled experiments to explore how different soil pH and fertilizers impact on the
growth of plants. A pH sensor is used to detect the pH of different soils here.
In this lesson, we are going to find out the most suitable light intensity range for plant growth, and get to know the relationship
between plant growth and light.
Experimentally determine the optimum amount of soil moisture needed for optimal plant growth. Identify aspects of human
activity which can negatively impact crop productivity.
Search the best PH, light level, and soil humidity of a plant online. Set up contrast experiments using the control variables
method to check if the plant grows best when the optimal growth requirements are met.
In this lesson, we are going to explore the conductivity of different liquids, discuss whether pure water can conduct electricity,
and find out which kind of liquid in our daily life has the best electrical conductivity.
In this lesson you will investigate how different materials and states of matter have different abilities to carry positive and
negative charges. These charges attract each other. The attraction or movement of charged particles can be measured.
We will start with the phenomenon of static electricity and then move to the conductivity of different substances when
they are dissolved in water. You will then use the Boson Kit to measure the change in conductivity as more salt
ions are added to water. This lesson will get you charged up!
In this lesson we will use BOSON modules to make a heart rate detector to monitor our heartbeat, by which to
explore the internal balance during the process of exercise.
