Beaverton, OR – December, 2005 – In celebration of its 25th anniversary in 2006, Vernier Software & Technology is inviting teachers to share memories about the ways in which the company’s data-collection technology has influenced their instruction and enhanced students’ learning. If their story is selected for publication, teachers will receive a $300 Vernier gift certificate and a box of gifts, including a 25th anniversary T-shirt and mug.
Vernier is specifically looking for stories that showcase labs or classrooms that have used its technology to improve teaching methods, increase students’ enthusiasm for science, or make difficult concepts easier to understand.
“A lot has changed since my wife, Christine, and I started out by placing an ad for our programs in a physics teaching journal, but we’ve always based our product development on what we’ve learned from personal contact with educators,’ said David Vernier, co-founder of Vernier and a former physics teacher. “We’ve talked to thousands of teachers over the years, and these teacher success stories are an extension of that tradition.”
As part of the company’s year-long celebration, it will host anniversary parties at science conferences including the American Association of Physics Teachers’ conference held in August in New York and at BCCE, Biennial Conference on Chemical Education, held in July in Indiana.
