David and Christine Vernier knew they wanted to do something big to mark Vernier Software & Technology’s 30th anniversary. They also knew it needed to top giving away one of the Beaverton company’s temperature probes to every school in the United States as part of its 25th anniversary celebration.
Since supporting science, technology, engineering and math has been a cornerstone of the business since 1981, the Vernier team decided to give a $300,000 gift to educators.
In 2011, Vernier selected 30 schools to receive one of its 30th anniversary innovation grants of $10,000 worth of Vernier technology equipment of their choosing.
