ErgoBot

There has never been such a powerful way to learn about motion.
  1. Create live graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration vs. time.
  2. The ErgoBot can drive a motion graph (up to +/- 40 cm/s).
  3. Teach vectors by making the ErgoBot drive through a maze.
The ErgoBot works with Windows, Mac, iPad, Chromebook, Android tablets, and even smartphones! You don't need to install any software. You don't need an internet connection. All you need is a device that has Bluetooth capability.

Tripod Stand

Our 0.7 m tripod stand features a wide, stable stance with sturdy rubber feet. Five sliding thread-inserts make it easy to attach accessories. They don't come out so they can't ever get lost! Learn more.

Optics System

Our rechargeable Light Source has four colored LEDs on a 2-cm square, making it easy to observe image inversion and magnification. The RGB center LED makes it a breeze to show color mixing. Our Optics set comes complete with a 1.4 m precision rail, 50 mm lens mounts, 50 mm concave and convex lenses, mirrors, a refraction cell, diffraction gratings, and more. Learn more.

Electricity and Magnetism Kit

Engineers design circuits with a solderless breadboard - now you can too! It has never been so easy to make series and parallel circuits. This kit includes a circuit breadboard, battery holders, assorted resistors, lamps—and even the electronics parts needed to create a fingertip infrared pulse monitor! Magnets and build-it-yourself electromagnet also included. Learn more.

Waves and Sound Kit

Designed to support our Waves and Sound curriculum, this versatile kit includes metal Snaky and Slinkie springs for transverse and longitudinal waves. Our resonance lever allows students to create resonance in both the mass-and-spring and pendulum. A resonance tube and tuning forks demonstrate the wavelength of sound.
