Science Philip Harris’s latest development Acquire, the state-of-the-art data logger was crowned Best Secondary ICT Resource and their Energy and Fuels Applied Science Kit was awarded Best Secondary non-ICT Resource. The winners were announced at the annual ERA awards dinner on Friday 5th March 2010 at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham. The Education Resources Awards (ERA) highlight the quality and diversity of educational products and resources, excellent educational establishments and the most dedicated members of the teaching profession and supplies industry, all working together to encourage the very best in education. The awards are organised in association with the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA). The award-winning Data Logger, Acquire, has a large 7 inch touch screen, rapid start up, six sensor ports and a huge memory (2GB). It has been built with accessibility in mind; in 30 seconds, Acquire can be taken out of the box and data acquisition started well under the 2 or 3 minutes required by other loggers. The Acquire data logger features a built-in VGA port a feature particularly beneficial for classroom demonstrations and training. Experiment results can be shown live on a whiteboard, without the hassle of setting up first on a computer; a great advantage to students and teachers as they can see exactly what the demonstrator has on their screen. Commenting on Philip Harris’s Acquire data logger the judges said: "We liked the easy and highly intuitive interface and the uncluttered controls of this science equipment. Acquire would appeal to all students who are well-used to mobile and games technology. Even the most science-phobic student will want to use Philip Harris’s new data logger to investigate and explore." MAR QR65 Philip Harris’s award-winning Energy and Fuels Kit can be used during teaching Applied Science; students can investigate how energy can be transformed from one to another, understand how electricity is generated and distributed as well as observe the efficiency of energy transfers in electrical appliances.
