This system provides a complete set of labs for mechanics, heat, light, sound, and electromagnetism.

550 Universal Interface

550 Universal Interface

The 550 is fast, powerful, and incredibly affordable. It offers half the ports and many of the same features as our 850 Interface in a smaller package.

Discover Pi Set

Discover Pi Set (10 pack)

This 10-pack of disc sets allows students to derive the meaning of pi directly from their measurements. Four plastic disks with varying diameter in each set.

Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
