A lab I started doing last year was the Heat Engine lab from Advanced Physics with Vernier – Beyond Mechanics. We did the lab again this year, but entirely on the LabQuest 2 instead of with LoggerPro. I’m consistently surprised with how much can be done entirely on the LabQuest 2 (specifically, integrating the area enclosed by the thermodynamic cycle in this case). The first part took longer than expected as students familiarized themselves with the equipment. We also had to troubleshoot some old equipment and make some replacements of hoses and stoppers that didn’t leak.
