To teach concepts in forces and motion, many schools utilize low-friction dynamics carts and tracks, and then attach sensors to allow students to collect data from their experiments.PASCO® Scientific today announces a new solution to make quantitative forces and motions experiments for physics and physical science easier and more affordable: the PASCO Smart Cart

The PASCO Smart Cart takes all of the sensor technology previously connected via lengthy wires and embeds it directly into the cart. Its onboard sensors wirelessly transmit position, velocity, acceleration and force data directly to a computer or mobile device via Bluetooth®. 

Using the Smart Cart, teachers can lead hands-on demonstrations to collect and analyze data for concepts including position and displacement, speed and velocity, one dimensional motion, acceleration, Newton’s laws, friction, kinetic energy, conservation of momentum, elastic and inelastic collisions, conservation of energy, and more. 

The Smart Cart was named a finalist for a GESS (Global Education Supplies and Solutions) Innovation Product award for 2016 and is priced at $159 for U.S. educators
