In 2016, the Technology Volunteers leaders designed and built an add on board for Arduino, the ExperiSense - to support a greater range of scientific experiments than was possible using the Picoboard, and also to enable output from Scratch into the physical world. The table below gives the new worksheets for the ExperiSense board. The board has been designed to be fully compatible with the Picoboard and the concepts from the original Sensing Our World worksheets can be used with only slight modifications.

At the 2017 Scratch Conference in Bordeaux, the Technology Volunteers ran a workshop showing the capabilities of this board.
