Designed for use with the Physics Lab Station: Mechanics Starter bundle, the Physics Lab Station: Mechanics Extension bundle expands your physics toolbox, allowing students to explore topics such as statics, rotation, projectile motion, and periodic motion. It includes an additional Smart Cart for studying collisions, a Mini Launcher for firing projectiles, and a Wireless Smart Gate for timing events accurately. A variety of accessories are also included.
Students can use the Wireless Smart Gate and patented Smart Cart to monitor key measurements in real time, displaying them as the lab unfolds for more meaningful learning. Use the Smart Cart’s built-in sensors to measure motion on or off the track, or time events with precision using the dual-beam Wireless Smart Gate. Students can also collect and compare data from multiple trials, easily apply lines of fit, and perform statistical analysis using PASCO software.
Ready-Made Mechanics Labs
This kit is complemented by a collection of ready-made experiments that can be downloaded for free from the Experiment Library. Each lab comes ready-to-use with editable student handouts, teacher answer keys, and helpful teaching tips.
