Featured Equipment

No-Bounce Pad

No-Bounce Pad

Stop falling objects from bouncing with PASCO’s No-Bounce Pad. Prevents heavy objects from damaging the floor and prevents falling objects from being damaged at impact.

Motion Sensor

Wireless Motion Sensor

The Wireless Motion Sensor uses ultrasound to measure the position, velocity, and acceleration of objects.

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.
