Guided by the activities in this e-book, students combine JavaScript and Vernier data-collection tools to develop an interactive web page that collects and displays graphs and live data from a Go Direct sensor. Along the way, students learn how to use HTML and CSS to customize the look and feel of their content so that each student creates their own unique web page. This e-book is written for the Go Direct Weather System, but the activities can be modified to create a visual display of data from any Vernier Go Direct sensor.

Whether you are a tech-savvy science instructor interested in integrating coding into your curriculum or a computer science instructor looking for the right project, these activities will engage your students and provide you with a structure that illustrates the power of coding.
