About Vernier Science Education

Since 1981, our mission has been to support educators in the sciences, develop high-quality products within your budget, and promote fun, hands-on learning that engages students.

Our Story

Vernier co-founder, Dave Vernier, had been a high school physics and physical science teacher for eight years when he began programming his first Precision Timer software application. 

Dave’s early years of teaching in an underserved school in Cleveland, Ohio, taught him that students gain a deeper understanding of science through a combination of daily demonstrations and highly interactive experiments. It was this discovery that drove Dave to spend his summers trying to come up with new teaching tools to use in the classroom. Dave’s creativity and his passion for science education, combined with the business acumen of his wife and Vernier co-founder Christine, were the driving forces behind the early years of Vernier Software & Technology. Supporting science educators by providing tools that help them teach students more effectively has been a guiding principle at Vernier since the very beginning, and it remains so today.

Educators in over 150 countries utilize our solutions.

We offer a full line of award-winning interfaces, sensors, software, and lab books to help engage and excite students through hands-on scientific investigation. Our team of over 100 employees, comprised of many former educators, is committed to creating world-class probeware, software, and lab equipment to utilize in classrooms and laboratories of every level to teach critical scientific concepts, encourage scientific problem-solving, and support a love of science in students and educators alike.
