A well-equipped physics lab station in a well-packaged portable container designed for non-conventional lab situations such as home schooling, or any situation that calls for an uncompromised lab experience with or without the presence of an experienced lab teacher and without the need for a traditional lab facility. Hands-on physics experiments have been designed to incline the student toward becoming a scientific innovator, to be convenient for the teacher, and to be safe for the user and the environment. Every experiment clearly teaches a scientific principle. The included equipment has been chosen or developed to produce successful results and give the student an educationally challenging hands-on learning experience. The kit is intended to cover the laboratory portion of a high school physics course. Kit contains everything necessary to perform 33 physics experiments, a student manual, and a teacher’s guide. Allow extra delivery time.
33 lab experiments include:
1. Scientific Analysis
2. Recording Timer and Acceleration of Gravity
3. Sum of Vectors
4. Projectile Motion
5. Newton’s Second Law

In rural Wisconsin in 1941, Norman Eckley was struggling to prepare his students for future jobs in agriculture. His struggle had nothing to do with his knowledge, experience, or teaching ability. He just couldn’t find the teaching tools he needed to support his lessons — so he decided to create his own.
Norman’s teaching aids brought learning to life in the classroom and offered his students real-world experiences. Working from his garage, he went on to found Nasco Education and share them with teachers everywhere through his mail-order catalogs. Suddenly, those impossible-to-find resources were all in one place at teachers’ fingertips.
This single-minded mission — to empower teachers with hands-on solutions that prepare, engage, and inspire students — is the foundation on which Nasco Education was built.
It starts with making your job easier. Our carefully curated supplies, pre-assembled and custom educational kits, comprehensive curriculums, free lesson plans, and webinars are all designed to save you time and help you deliver lessons students will never forget.
Whether you’re looking for supplies to inspire young artists, math manipulatives for each student, or engaging lessons for science, culinary arts, or AFNR — it’s all here. You’ll even find ways to focus on diversity and help students practice social-emotional skills.
