Introducing students to coding and computer-controlled outcomes is easier than ever before with Blockly coding. Included in SPARKvue 4 and Capstone 2, Blockly offers students a new world of experimental opportunities that focus on computational thinking and data visualization.
Dynamics Systems provide an engaging and affordable method for physics educators to teach a variety of complex concepts. We offer a variety of cart and track options that enable educators to personalize their Dynamics System, while staying within their budget. Compare our cutting-edge carts, sleek and expandable tracks, and various price points to determine which system suits your applications.
PASCO designs and manufactures reliable equipment and labs for use in International Baccalaureate (IB) schools. We support teachers, lab staff, and students with a wealth of information about using our experiments and sensors for data collection and analysis in IB courses.
The kinematic equations are a set of equations that describe the motion of an object with constant acceleration. Kinematics equations require knowledge of derivatives, rate of change, and integrals. To keep our focus on high school physics, we will not be covering integrals.
Modular Circuits are a groundbreaking, wireless solution to complex circuit activities that often fail to reflect textbook circuit work. Using this familiar design, students can successfully recreate their drawn circuit diagrams, generate live data, and confidently explore electrical concepts. This page compares our Modular Circuit Kits to help you determine which kit is best for your needs.
Interfaces play a central role in STEM experimentation, and are among one of the most important purchases a science educator can make. This page contains a chart that compares the features, applications, and connectivity of our interfaces to help you choose your next interface with confidence.
We offer a variety of interfaces with diverse applications. Some of our products, such as the PASPORT and ScienceWorkshop sensors, require an interface, while others do not. This helpful page compares interface features, applications, and connectivity to help you decide which interface will serve you best.
Photogates, fences, and timers are a staple of every physics lab. We’ve developed two standalone photogates, as well as two software-dependent options with varying capabilities and applications. This page compares our products’ functions, applications, and connectivity to help you select the perfect fit for your lab.
PASCO’s Projectile Launchers provide an exciting, hands-on method for students to experiment with projectile motion. Each of our affordable launchers is precision engineered to produce highly accurate and repeatable results with every launch. This page compares capabilities, size, and applications for our Projectile Launchers and Ballistics.
The right hand rule is a hand mnemonic used in physics to identify the direction of axes or parameters that point in three dimensions. Invented in the 19th century by British physicist John Ambrose Fleming for applications in electromagnetism, the right hand rule is most often used to determine the direction of a third parameter when the other two are known (magnetic field, current, magnetic force).
Force sensors are a classic component of any physics lab and provide students with a chance to visualize motion in real-time. We have spent decades developing innovative force sensors and load cells that continue to push the boundaries of motion experiments. This page compares connectivity and applications for our ScienceWorkshop, PASPORT, and Wireless Force Sensors, as well as our load cells.
PASCO light sensors provide students with an accessible method for visualizing real-time light data in a variety of forms. Whether you’re looking to study ambient light, diffractions, or atomic spectra, this page will help you find an affordable light sensor for your applications.
