Every year, we look forward to attending the TCEA conference and meeting so many educators. We love learning how our technology is being used to teach various scientific concepts. This year, not only did we get the opportunity to meet a lot of educators, but we also had the honor of winning an award.
Vernier received the Tech & Learning TCEA Best of Show 2020 Award for our unique middle school STEAM solution with SAM Labs. The winners were selected by an anonymous panel of tech-savvy educator judges who scoured the exhibit hall floor during the TCEA 2020 conference in Austin, Texas. The judges rated their impressions of individual products on a sliding scale, evaluating areas such as quality and effectiveness, ease of use, cost, and creative use of technology. We are happy that the judges found our integration of Vernier sensors with SAM Labs STEAM Kits deserving of this award.
