Vernier Engineering Award

Win a $5,500 Award from Vernier

Are your students using Vernier sensors in the engineering design process? Maybe you are challenging your students to control digital output based on sensor input. Perhaps your students are writing NI LabVIEW or ROBOTC® code to read a Vernier sensor from a robotics platform such as LEGO®, VEX®, or Arduino. Tell us about how you are using Vernier technology in your classroom or lab and you could win one of two $5,500 awards (one for middle school and one for high school)!

Each award consists of $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier technology, and $1,500 toward expenses to attend either the 2017 NSTA STEM Forum or the 2017 ASEE Annual Conference. See complete rules, examples from past winners, and an online application »

Applications Open for Annual Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards

Vernier Software & Technology and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) are now accepting applications for the annual Vernier/NSTA Technology Awards. The 2014 awards program will recognize up to seven educators—one elementary teacher, two
middle school teachers, three high school teachers, and one college-level educator—who promote the innovative use of data-collection technology.

Prizes include $1,000 in cash, $3,000 in Vernier products, and up to $1,500 toward expenses to attend the 2014 NSTA National Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. Award recipients will be chosen based on their application, which is judged by a panel of
NSTA-appointed experts. All applications must be submitted by November 30, 2013.

The Vernier/NSTA awards program allows Vernier to recognize STEM educators who are using data-collection technology with their students in truly engaging and innovative ways. Last year’s winning entries encompassed a wide range of data-collection activities, including the investigation of the pH found in different cakes and chemical reactions, the creation of control boxes for underwater remotely-operated vehicles, the design of biological buffers for water treatment, and the exploration of environmental radiation and its effects on cellular growth.
