New Company Name, Same Dedication to Hands-On Science Learning

Vernier Software & Technology is now Vernier Science Education

Exciting news: Vernier Software & Technology is now Vernier Science Education!

Although our name has changed, our dedication to hands-on science learning, our deep commitment to being an authentic and trusted partner to educators, and our support for all aspects of STEM education remain steadfast.

In some ways, our new name is not really new. From day one, we have been more than a software and technology company; we are a company founded by educators, for educators. 

“For more than 40 years, we have been committed to using our experience, knowledge, and passion to create the best and most reliable solutions for STEM education,” said Christine Vernier, co-founder of the company. “We have also supported STEM educators in engaging all students in hands-on science learning by developing hardware, software, and content, as well as providing technical assistance and professional development. 

“In that way, our new name reflects who we have always been and will continue to be:
a science education company.”

Additionally, our new name emphasizes our commitment to providing educators with the tools they need to engage all students in hands-on, socially relevant STEM education and build a STEM-literate society. 

“With this name change, we want to make it clear that we’re dedicated to using our experience in science education to partner with educators and communities to develop the next generation of knowledgeable citizens who can solve problems, contribute to their communities, and drive innovation,” CEO John Wheeler said.

The Vernier STEM Classroom

To support educators in engaging high school students in STEM learning, we offer comprehensive science education solutions, which include hardware, software, content, professional development, technical support, and (in the near future) assessments. 

Together, these solutions form the Vernier STEM Classroom—an integrated approach to using the full catalog of Vernier solutions to make a high-quality STEM education possible for all high school students. 

At the heart of the Vernier STEM Classroom is Vernier Connections. Slated for release in 2023, this powerful, easy-to-use online platform helps deepen student understanding of STEM concepts by bringing together enhanced Vernier experiments; hands-on data collection and analysis using Vernier probeware; and newly developed, socially relevant, real-world learning experiences. 

With Vernier Connections, STEM educators can customize content to meet the unique learning needs of their students, create and share experiments, assign work, and determine student comprehension through assessments

Looking Ahead

The future requires new tools and teaching approaches to ensure we are developing creative problem solvers and STEM-literate citizens, and we are committed to partnering with educators and communities to build a STEM-literate society.

Everyone at Vernier Science Education is excited to continue this important work, and we invite you to learn more about our name change—and what we have planned for next year!
