Featured Equipment

550 Universal Physics System

Universal 550 Physics Experiment Bundle

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.

Radiation Cans

Radiation Cans

Three cans in different colors to quantitatively investigating a full range of heat transfer phenomena.

Quad Temperature Sensor

PASPORT Quad Temperature Sensor

Allows any combination of our stainless steel, fast response or skin/surface temperature probes for a wide variety of temperature measurement. For use with PASPORT Interfaces.

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.
