Over the years, we have entered into a variety of alliances with other companies. The goal of each of these relationships is to provide educators with ever-improving access to and support for the use of data-collection technology in their classrooms. We are proud to acknowledge our affiliation with the following companies.
Texas Instruments and Vernier Software & Technology began working together in 1993 to develop handheld data collection technology for science and math education. This collaboration has produced low-cost, yet powerful portable data collection equipment for use in the classroom and the field. Joint projects have included developing new sensors and new data collection interfaces, writing lab manuals, and providing professional development opportunities.
Our special relationship with Flinn Scientific, the leading provider of chemistry education products, began in 1995. Since then, we have worked together to provide outstanding support for Chemistry activities. Both companies carry a full line of Vernier probeware technology.

Bio-Rad combines high-quality supplies, equipment, and curricula with outstanding customer service and technical support—things Vernier believes are important to teachers. Vernier’s photodocumentation and gel analysis capabilities are a natural extension to the Bio-Rad products you are already using.
In this partnership, Bio-Rad and Vernier will work together to enhance classroom experiences with joint experiments and curricula. Teachers are utilizing Bio-Rad’s tested lab activities for bacterial transformation and DNA electrophoresis along with Vernier’s Blue and White Digital Bioimaging Systems and Logger Prosoftware for analysis.

This excellent, world-wide, hands-on, program gives primary- and secondary-school students the opportunity to learn science by doing science. Students participating in GLOBE take scientifically valid environmental measurements and report them to a publicly available database. Protocols and instruments are required to meet rigorous specifications in order to ensure the highest quality standards for data collection.
We have worked closely with National Instruments, the makers of the LabVIEW graphic programming language, to provide a great way for students and instructors to create their own programs for use with Vernier LabPro. We have participated in three joint workshops with National Instruments to train instructors in this kind of do-it-yourself programming. LabVIEW programming has led to a lot of great student projects and is just another example of the many ways Vernier products can be used in your teaching.
