What Educators Are Saying

"I always give the message loud and clear about the software. It's the best $189 investment any school can make!!!"

Scott Stein

Springside School, Philadelphia, PA

"I found the workshop to be extremely relevant as we continue to integrate technologies into our biology courses. I feel much more comfortable with the Vernier equipment and confident that I will be able be to successfully offer new laboratory exercises in Biology 101 this fall that incorporate the Vernier probes and Logger Pro software."

John Tiftickjian, Ph.D

Delta State University, Cleveland, MI

"Again, thanks for the prompt and helpful response. I keep buying from Vernier for this very type of support. I know that you want your equipment being used effectively and are willing to share your expertise!"

Cheryl Fiello

Claremont High School, Claremont, CA

We’re Biologists. We’re Educators. We Are Your Team.
