Are you looking for new parts for that circuit board? How about a new microscope to view your bug sample slides? Fortunately there are several websites out there that cater to all your surplus science equipment needs in this country. The government often sells American science surplus. That’s right, American science surplus is sold by the government for the benefit of teachers, crafters, hobbyists, artists, inventors, scientists (mad and otherwise), kids, and anyone with a taste for gadgets, gizmos and all science-related products.
For anyone who might not already know, a surplus store or auction is a place where excess goods are sold. These may be government-purchased science goods that once served a purpose but are no longer required or many times surplus can also be an excess of purchased science goods that were never used. These items may come from a multitude of places such as schools, state universities, hospitals, government laboratories, NASA, government funded projects, etc. Many of these scientific and medical goods are in excellent condition and are sold for a fraction of what was originally paid for them.
American science surplus auctions are basically auctions that offer a gadget heaven of surplus science goods. You can find just about anything and everything amid their unique mix of tools, hardware, surplus electronic parts, science kits, and military and educational supplies. American science surplus is also the perfect place to find everything for kids science projects. Whether it’s a chemistry, physics, biology or an electronics project, these have the parts and supplies you need for that A+ or blue ribbon.
I recently checked out several online websites that sold American science surplus goods and was amazed to see how incredibly diverse the surplus science equipment I found was. Items ranged from projectors, lab equipment, and stethoscopes to electric motors, oscilloscopes, and dental goods. Whatever scientific gadget or tchotchke you might crave, science surplus auctions have probably got it. And keep in mind: the best part about these auctions is that you end up paying a mere fraction of the original cost of the items. You could easily walk away with a 2-year-old microscope for $50 when some prominent university might have spent several hundred or thousand. Deals like this happen all the time!
There are several websites out there that offer information on auctions of American science surplus goods. You may purchase these surplus science items in them or you may venture to a live surplus auction. The choice is yours.
