Chemistry Starter Lab Station

Product Code: EC-6362


The Chemistry Starter Lab Station makes it easy and affordable to begin using sensor-based technology in your chemistry classroom or at home. Inside the Starter Lab Station are the wireless sensors used to perform lab activities from the Essential Chemistry Student Lab Manual. Available separately is the Chemistry Extension Lab Station (EC-6363) which, when combined with the Chemistry Starter Lab Station, comprises the set of wireless sensors used to perform most of the labs inside the Essential Chemistry Student Lab Manual, plus many of the lab activities found in PASCO’s Advanced Chemistry Through Inquiry Teacher Guide.

Components of the Starter Lab Station

Wireless Sensors: PASCO’s rugged, low-cost wireless sensors connect directly to computers, Chromebooks, tablets, and mobile devices to allow students to quickly collect data, leaving more time for analyzing and interpreting data. This lab station includes:

1x Wireless Pressure Sensor (PS-3203)
1x Wireless pH Sensor (PS-3204)
1x Wireless Temperature Sensor (PS-3201)
1x Molecular Models Set (PS-3400)
1x Periodic Trends Cards (EC-3405)
1x Periodic Table (EC-3404)
1x Spectrum Cards (EC-3403)

Gratnells Storage Tray: Every Starter Lab Station includes a Gratnells storage tray with a custom-cut insert designed to securely fit each sensor and accessory. These trays provide a convenient and well-ordered storage solution for any classroom, while also making transportation between classrooms effortless.

Digital Access to Lab Activities: Included with the starter lab station is digital access to:

PASCO’s Essential Chemistry Student Lab Manual
PASCO’s Essential Chemistry Teacher Lab Manual 
PASCO’s Advanced Chemistry Through Inquiry Teacher Guide

Printed Samples of Student Handouts: 10 sample student lab activity handouts from the Essential Chemistry Student Lab Manual, and Advanced Chemistry Through Inquiry Teacher Guide are printed, bound in a booklet, and included in the lab station for your convenience.

Distance Learning Resources: The 10 labs found in the Printed Samples Booklet also include digital resources to support distance learning for students working at home. These resources include live video recordings of data collection and sample data files that students can use to perform their own analyses.

Lab Activities

Combined, the Essential Chemistry Student Lab Manual, and Advanced Chemistry Through Inquiry Teacher Guide contain over 90 lab activities ranging from introductory to advanced topics. Below is the list of 10 printed sample student handouts inside the Essential Physics Starter Lab Station.
