Featured Equipment

Comprehensive 850 Mechanics Bundle

This bundle includes all the equipment and sensors needed to perform the experiments in the Comprehensive 850 Mechanics System Experiment Manual.

Motion Sensor

PASPORT Motion Sensor

The PASPORT Motion Sensor accurately measures the position, velocity, and acceleration of a target. It can be used to track the motion of balls, carts, people, and more.

Basic PAScar Metal Track 1.2m System

Basic PAScar Metal Track 1.2 m System

The Basic PAScar/Metal Track 1.2 system is made up of plastic carts and a 1.2 m aluminum track without the accessories package.

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.
