Adam Equipment will showcase balances at two science educator conferences: CAST in Dallas and NSTA/CSTA in Long Beach.

Adam Equipment, a world-class balance and scale manufacturer, is exhibiting at two education-focused shows over the next month. During these events, Adam will display a wide selection of balances and scales for science teachers and students in all levels, from elementary schools to colleges and universities.

From Nov. 20-22, Adam will be exhibiting at booth #607 during the 2014 Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching (CAST), taking place at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas. CAST is sponsored by the Science Teachers Association of Texas (STAT).

Adam will participate as an exhibitor at booth #604 during the NSTA Area 3 Conference, held Dec. 4-6 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California. This year, the NSTA western regional conference is also co-sponsored by the California Science Teachers Association (CSTA).

From triple beams to compacts, portable precision and precision balances, Adam's education balances are created to be tough enough to survive any classroom.

With its innovative stackable design and practical features, the Highland is a winning choice for all levels of science educators seeking affordability and durability in a portable precision balance. A weigh-below hook is provided to facilitate density and specific gravity measurements. Adam’s patented ShockProtect® feature helps prevent overload damage to internal components, while HandiCal® offers speedy, intuitive calibration without external weights. To deter theft, the Highland is equipped with a built-in security slot that accommodates an optional Kensington-type lock and cable.

The New Nimbus range of balances is well-suited for AP science and university students performing precision weighing tasks. The Nimbus offers an elegant, innovative design that economizes space in tight classrooms, yet retains a high level of performance. The internal mechanism is fabricated specifically to enable the Nimbus to tolerate student use. The Nimbus's software has the necessary features to perform science experiments, from basic weighing to complex, college-level research assignments. Navigation buttons are large and color-coded, helping students operate the balance and execute functions without extensive training. Watch a video introduction of the Nimbus:

Adam’s compact weighing solutions include the Core portable balance and the Dune compact balance, and both will be on display at CAST and NSTA/CSTA. Core balances stack easily for classroom storage and offer unbeatable value for basic classroom weighing. ShockProtect® safeguards the load cell from overload, and a convenient weigh-below hook facilitates below-balance weighing for density and specific gravity measurements. Dune offers a large pan and splashproof keypad for fast cleaning, and is simple to operate and streamlined for easy storage.

Unrivaled in capacity and readability among its peers, the CB portable compact balance boasts a combination of value and durability. The classic design and easy-to-clean features make the CB a winning choice for classroom.

Adam’s traditional education balance is the sturdy TBB. Metal housing and a stainless steel weighing pan make it ideal for classroom use. With a larger body than other triple-beam balances, TBB features innovative tripod legs and an integrated weigh-below hook, simplifying density and specific gravity determination. A security slot for optional Kensington-type lock and cable help deter theft.
