Putting the “E” in STEM
Science experiments traditionally focus on a particular principle and specify which tools to use in the investigation. Engineering activities, on the other hand, typically present a problem and challenge students to apply creativity and limited materials to solve it.
Increase student engagement by including engineering activities in your science curriculum. Engineering activities offer an alternative form of assessment and fosters good problem-solving skills.
Bridges and Structures Testing
Connect mathematics and physics concepts to real-world bridges and structures with activites for the Vernier Structures & Materials Tester.

Renewable Energy and KidWind
A full science and engineering solution, focused on renewable energy, with lab books, equipment, and competitions.
Renewable Energy Investigations »
Engineering Extension Activities
Engineering Extension Activities provide a way to add an engineering component to a Vernier science experiment. Use sensor data and Logger Pro software (or LabQuest 2) to help solve an engineering problem.

Build Your Own Sensors
Build your own sensors (BYOS) activities give students the opportunity to build their own detectors and measurement devices. Students assemble an electronic circuit and use Logger Pro software to calibrate and test their sensor.
Build Your Own Sensors »
Engineering projects challenge students to design solutions to real-world problems faced by engineers. Students work within given constraints and design requirements, create stated deliverables, and test their designs using Logger Pro software.
