Essential Physics and Essential Chemistry were developed by our team of educators, scientists, and curriculum developers to provide students with modernized textbooks that educators can afford. Both programs include a student textbook, e-book, digital teacher resources, lab manuals, and equipment kits.

Blog: Tips & Applications

Who Discovered Spectroscopy?

Similar to many scientific concepts, spectroscopy developed as a result of the cumulative work of many scientists over many decades. We typically credit Sir Isaac Newton with the development of spectroscopy,

What is the Difference Between Spectroscopy and Microscopy?

Most people have used a microscope at some point during their education, but not everyone has used a spectroscope or spectrometer. While they share similar names, spectroscopy and microscopy are used for different purposes.

What is Spectroscopy Used For?

Spectroscopy is used for physical and analytical chemistry to detect, determine, or quantify the molecular composition of a sample.

PASCO Scientific has been an innovator in science education and science lab equipment for over 50 years.

What began as a science fair project has become a trusted source for high quality school laboratory equipment in the United States and around the globe. We carry lab supplies for your physics classroom and chemistry lab, as well as supplies for biology, life science, engineering, and environmental science. Request a catalog!

For the educational physics lab we invented carts and tracks, which are now standard teaching tools used worldwide. Our technology leadership continues with the award-winning Smart Cart, which removes the wires while providing new ways to study kinematics on and off the track. We also carry just about all laboratory supplies, from rods, clamps, and Ohaus balances to mass and hanger sets and laboratory glassware. See our full offering of lab supplies.

For the chemistry lab we have the equipment you need: test tubes, ring stands, pH meters, digital microscopes, and much more. We also have test kits for environmental sciences and science kits for electricity, waves, machines, and more.

At PASCO scientific, our thoughts are with you and our employees during this unprecedented time due to COVID-19. To reduce possible exposure to COVID-19, our employees are working from home and have reduced the work week by closing on Fridays. We will continue to provide customer support from 7:00 AM to 4:30 PM PST Monday-Thursday. Check out our new resources to support Distance Learning for teachers »
