Vernier’s 25th anniversary is fast approaching and we want you to share the celebration. We know that many of you have great stories about how data-collection technology changed your teaching and enhanced your students’ learning. We want to celebrate your use of technology in science and showcase your classroom. If we publish your story, you will receive 25th Anniversary T-shirt, and $100 Vernier Gift Certificate. We will be publishing up to 25 stories.
Thermocouples are one of the most common temperature sensors. They can be used to measure temperatures between -200 and 1400 degrees Celsius. If you have never had the opportunity to do an experiment using a Vernier Thermocouple, here are three activities to try: Flame Mapping, Bending Glass, and Heating Curve for Ethanol. This might be just what you need to heat things up this fall.
Brian Czapor and some of his fellow students from the University of Akron participated in the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Aero Design® Competition. In order to improve their design, they used the Vernier LabPro and our 3-Axis Accelerometer to give them flight data.
It is the goal of English Language Learners (ELL) teachers to make every lesson a language lesson. Using lessons with hands-on activities not only gets the children physically active in a lesson, but also provides opportunities for developing language. This has been the experience of Charlotte Park Elementary School first grade ELL teacher Dr. Juanita M. “Marti” Moore.
