LabQuest Stream™ was named a winner of Tech & Learning’s ISTE 2016 Best of Show Awards, which recognizes products and services that show the greatest promise according to the country’s most tech-savvy educators. The data-collection interface for science and STEM education was chosen based on its quality, effectiveness, ease of use, and creative use of technology.
The awards program, which is now in its third year, highlights game-changing technology exhibited at ISTE, the annual premier education technology conference. After rating their impressions of the technologies using a sliding scale, the judges meet in person to decide which products will have the most impact in the classroom and are deserving of the Best of Show recognition.
The LabQuest Stream is a wireless and USB sensor interface that expands data-collection possibilities in science and STEM classrooms by allowing students to collect scientific data from multiple sensors with a mobile device, Chromebook™, or computer. Its five sensor ports are compatible with a wide array of Vernier sensors for conducting multi-variable experiments and data-logging activities.
Students can use LabQuest Stream with Vernier Graphical Analysis™ apps, Logger Pro®, and Logger Lite software to collect and analyze up to 10,000 samples per second using wireless functionality or up to 100,000 samples per second when using USB connectivity.
The Vernier LabQuest Stream™ is now shipping. This brand new wireless and USB sensor interface expands data-collection possibilities in science and STEM classrooms by allowing students to collect scientific data from multiple sensors with a mobile device, Chromebook™, or computer.
“Today it’s even easier for students to experiment and gather scientific data in real time by using Vernier’s newest equipment, like Vernier’s LabQuest Stream sensor interface. With it, teachers can purchase and plug in the right sensors for whatever type of student lab they’ve designed and assigned.”

Vernier Software & Technology was recently named the recipient of the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) Partners for Progress and Prosperity (P3) Award for the Northwest region. The award encourages and recognizes successful and exemplary partnerships between industry, academia, government, small business and/or other organizations – including ACS local sections, ACS divisions, ACS international chapters – that impact outcomes in one or more of the following categories:
Improving the public perception and appreciation for chemistry
Promoting career advancement opportunities and/or supporting entrepreneurship in the chemistry enterprise
Advancing advocacy efforts with government and other thought leaders
Supporting STEM education and/or research
Vernier was recognized in part for its relationship with the Portland section of ACS and its support of ACS programming for national ACS meetings, the Northwest Regional Meeting (NORM), and local section meetings. The company was also recognized for its local and national support of science and math teachers through its workshops, technical support for equipment, and consistent development of useful technology for teaching students with hands-on experiments.
Vernier will be formally recognized at the 2016 ACS NORM being held this June in Anchorage, Alaska.
The Stevie Awards recognized Vernier’s outstanding customer service with a bronze medal for “Customer Service Department of the Year,” and they awarded our app, Graphical Analysis for Chrome, with a gold medal for “Education Product of the Year.” Vernier competed with businesses in every industry across the country for this honor.
Vernier was proud to sponsor this year’s Inspiring Science Education (ISE) Learning Scenarios Competition, a European-based award recognizing teachers who create the most innovative and inspiring lessons and scenarios for others to use based on the tools, resources, and materials available on the Inspiring Science Education Portal.
Panagiota Argyri, a science teacher at Evangeliki Model High School in Smyrna, Greece, won with her “Climate change” entry. The two runners-up were Beatriz Padín from Colexio M. Peleteiro in Spain with her “Una bola de demolición llena de energía” entry and Henna Anunti from Valtari Upper Comprehensive School in Finland for her “Signs of Seasons – Winter Case Study” entry.
