Howdy Texas!

We invite you to stop by our booth #418 so that you can personally see and touch many of the “Cool tools” that we have for physics, physical science and chemistry.  We will have many products on display, but the following will be featured:

  • RSpec-Explorer – View spectra live on a PC in minutes, and experience real-time spectroscopy for a fraction of the cost of like products.
  • Pendulum Wave – A unique Arbor Scientific acrylic model which consists of a series of pendula with increasing time periods. When the nine pendula are simultaneously released, they produce the effect of a wave.
  • Forces on Inclined Plane Demonstrator – A new Arbor Scientific tool that allows teachers and students to engage directly and easily with different forces and angles on an inclined plane. If you would like to have a more in-depth introduction to our Cool Tools, we invite you to attend our workshop on Force and Motion or any of our sponsored workshops described below.
