Welcome to Chemistry in the Classroom
Bring your chemistry curriculum to life. Prepare the next generation of scientists with hands-on access to real-world instrumentation. Teaching and practical training of spectroscopic techniques like FTIR, NMR, and UV-Vis, or elemental and structural analysis of materials are an important part of many chemistry curriculums.
Whether you are teaching introductory chemistry, organic chemistry, or advanced instrumentation courses, our spectrometers offer ease-of-use, reliable operation, and connected solutions for the modern classroom.
Explore our classrooms to find lesson plans, videos, webinars and products that fit your curriculum needs and ignites the scientist in all of your students.
