Teaching of science and technical subjects is not too attractive for pupils in primary schools, especially for physics and chemistry. Key role plays subjects concerning on sophistication, and the unsatisfied number of experiments and special tools, that cannot able to attract these subjects. Pupils may be more motivated by the increased using of information and communication technologies (ICT) in these subjects. Generally, the pupils are positive to ICT systems, even though it is a different area of ICT (usually for pupils regards to using of ICT in the form of communication, social networking and gaming).

The teaching of physical and chemical experiments can be realized for using of variety of a measuring system connected to the computer. Physical and chemical variables are displayed via sensors connected to a measuring system and evaluated on the computer. There are several types of measurement systems, which are designed for teaching in primary schools in science and technical subjects made by different manufacturers. Every manufacturer has developed its own interface, which allows the connection of different sensors. This interface is connected to the computer. The computer measured data are visualized, analyzed and archived using special software.

The teaching in the laboratory at the Faculty of Education, University of Ostrava, students of various disciplines can learn these measuring systems themselves and to design and implement experiments and measurements of electrical and non-electrical quantities that can attract instruction in their teaching practice.
