Vernier 40th Anniversary

Four decades ago, our company started when one physics teacher decided to bring physics alive for his students. Since then, Vernier Software & Technology has supported educators as they inspire, challenge, and educate students using technology that lets them see the world in which they live and predict outcomes. For the June/July issue of The Caliper, we are celebrating the past 40 years of serving educators by taking a closer look at our co-founders, our mission, and our evolution. We are honored to play a small part in helping educators do their important work. Thank you, educators!
